First I noticed Television Hill. Old TVs, painted with political and personal mottos like BUY MY LIE and TRUE FRIENDS ARE FEW, dot a hillside near Fletcher Drive and Riverside Drive. Over time, some TVs are added, some taken away. By whom? Hard to say. Maybe more than one person. Maybe it's an unplanned, organic conspiracy rather than any single artist's doing.
Now I see Median Cairn. A column of carefully-stacked rocks appears in the middle of Fletcher Drive at the Glendale Freeway ramps. Like other stone monuments, might this one mark a gateway to a neighborhood, like our own Atwater Village? Or might it signify something more sinister - a burial? (Yikes.)
Less than half a mile apart, perhaps both these displays have been inspired by other Fletcher Drive experiences. A smooth tuneup at Luis Lopez Automotive. A smooth soft-serve at Foster's Freeze. A smooth lapdance at Strip Club Too.
