New Jersey based artist Peter Emerick has been photographing traffic cones for several years. His Koans series encompass grids and single photos of all kinds of traffic cones photographed from a birds eye view. They are surprisingly varied and that particular angle offers up interesting abstractions of the ubiquitous object.
Emerick, together with artist Erik Sanner—who is also fascinated by traffic cones and includes them in his artwork, as well as apparently having given East Village Traffic Cone Viewing Tours a couple of years back—are putting together The Traffic Cone Occasional and are looking for artists who create art with traffic cones. If you are one such artist, you can contact them via one of their websites, here or here.
