A big part of my art practice involves taking something discarded and making it into something fabulous.
That’s the plan anyway.
But with my day to day work it’s sometimes a bit harder to polish an otherwise turdy moment. All those Instagrammers out there do it with the aid of a fancy filter. Something that makes your whites whiter and your brights brighter. Sunsets become more sunsetty. Your face becomes less dead corpse and more blushing bride with the swipe of your greasy finger.
But sometimes you need an industrial strength plunger to just shove all that crap out of your toilet day. Some sort of filter that could inject a little magic into a trip to the grocery store or your dead aunt’s funeral.
Hence #magicfilter. The train is a perfect spot to use a little photo prop.
