n.— «I engage in a practice that is referred to as “Benching.” All you need to go benching is a love for trains, and a keen eye for art and authority figures.…Benching is looking for and identifying graffiti and matching it up with the artist who created it. There are dozens of message-boards devoted to this hobby, and Flickr has a thriving scene of people who trade hard-copies of photos and track specific pieces on their journey across the country. There are different types of artwork to be found on trains, and I’m going to introduce you to a few of them.» —“Benching 101″ by Seetwist Faster Than the World May 29, 2007.
