Beautiful Mundane
Project info

Robert Heavrin has as an eye for finding beauty in the mundane and often sees human emotions in inanimate objects. Heavrin's influences include the book On Looking by Alexandra Horowitz, which illustrates how what you notice varies greatly depending on your level of knowledge about the things around you. While he is not an expert on painted street lines or curbs, the book awoke him to the every-day things around him. “If we're going to pass by painted black top and askew manhole covers every day, we might as well enjoy it,” Heavrin says.
