Nate Swain is a landscape architect by training, and a keen observer by nature. His first foray into public art came with murals in the North End. Now he's set his sights on other spaces ripe for an art intervention. His new blog maps out every boring, blank, or depressing city space, and he plans to expand this survey to the entire city of Boston. We talk with him about making art on an urban canvas.
