Analyse a visual text: object/item/image/space
I chose this item as my visual text to analyse as it is quite unique to where it was found (San Fran bar). This is an interesting item for me because it was created to look how it was when the photo was taken only after so many people over a period of time have contributed to how we see it now. All the stickers and graffiti combine to create a unique appearance specific to that particular fire sprinkler inlet, giving the object character. It also interests me what people think of to as; some see it as art and other see it as vandalism. Personally I think it is really interesting and full of personality, and not only the object itself but also the environment and the people that choose to go there.
