The walk around Green Street Station is either an everyday
urban reality or a Dada experience. It is an experience of convenient
circulation, or the reconfiguring of a map and a street plan.
It is a conventional path which has the possibility of migrating
into an erratic form, and an experience of seeing and collecting.
Each day, countless individuals pass personal landmarks, acknowledging,
or overlooking visual treasures. Where these divergent paths converge
is the Green Street Station. Considering the Gallery/Station as
a center point, and the turnstile as a device that records passage,
gives access, and drives a mechanism, our collection of images
organized itself on the principles of the site. A transit and
neighborhood hub, the station is tied to spokes of experience
-- each radiating out along concentric rings of increasing magnitude.
Characteristically, our collection of images consists of those places and objects which support this synergy -- circulation systems, mechanical contrivances, suggestions of going and stopping, intimations of increasing velocity or diminishing energy, and places which inspired us to pause, reflect, and then continue on.
