Ingenious Graffiti

A few years back, the city started covering ugly phone exchange boxes with historical prints depicting Vancouver in earlier days. Inevitably, these images started getting tagged ruthlessly. Today I passed one of those boxes and saw how someone had pasted a recursive photograph onto the box. An otherwise unremarkable collection of tags becomes a representation of looking back in time, of gazing into a portal to a far off universe.

It reminds me of Apple's Time Machine interface.
