In April of 2000, Elliott Smith released his album Figure 8. The cover pictured him in front of a mural at Solutions! Audio/Video Repair in Los Angeles' Silver Lake neighborhood. After Smith died in 2003, the mural has become as a quasi-memorial to the singer-songwriter with people have taking photos of the wall. The mural has continuously changed in the past 13 years and these photos serve as a visual timeline of the wall's condition.
