Others are seize-the-moment phenomena - creations that rely on a confluence of events, such as technological advances coinciding with market shifts. Witness Curalate, the latest star to emerge from Philadelphia's burgeoning start-up scene. At noon Thursday, Mayor Nutter will visit Curalate's Walnut Street headquarters for a ceremonial ribbon-cutting to celebrate its swift growth into a business with 21 employees and 300 client companies, in what an aide calls "our ongoing effort to make Philadelphia a home to start-ups and entrepreneurs.

Picture Alfred Hitchcock's sinister 1943 Shadow of a Doubt and Walker Evans' portraits of New York subway riders taken between 1938 and 1941 (he kept a camera in his coat and caught his subjects sitting across the aisle off-guard, but looking suspiciously prepared). They're the two obvious ancestors of photographer Ditta Baron Hoeber's mysterious serial cellphone photographs of the interiors of trains, which make up her exhibition "Proximity" in Moore College of Art and Design's Goldie Paley Gallery.
