Graffiti Removal Art

This video is about the subconsious art that is produced through the process of graffiti removal. Through the repression of written expression, modernist art ideals emerge creating an interesting array of geometry and shapes all of which are unconscious to the “artist”. It is layered and complex art form, which is accidental. The people doing it are not versed in art, yet they chose proportional relationships that are “pleasing to the eye” as well as color relationships.

7 Billion Others


6,000 people all over the world were interviewed and asked 45 basic human questions. Their answers to “What is love, war, peace, who they are, what they would pass to their children and what they learned from their parents” were presented in video form. These testimonials relate to my thesis and will be projected in rooms throughout the Center for Folklore, Storytelling and Oral History.

The space created allows the opportunity to experience the external environment through filter. It is meant to help people slow down and to focus their senses. The space is a sort of meditation space in which one crawls into to help break out of the everyday experience. once inside they are surrounded by fabric that is wrapped leaving no corners. The enclosure blocks visual connection with the outside environment. Light that filters through and sound that filters through changes the experience of being in the space because the senses are limited. Hanging in the space is a floating photography mounted on plexiglass. This mounting processes allows the filtered light to create a glowing effect enhancing the visual experience of focusing on the image. While in the space, the participant is able to see the image in a new way connecting their senses to create a story or to simply slow down and see something they might have previously over looked.

This is a performance piece which is really lovely because she performs domestic acts of kindness. Mainly wrapping presents for people in creative and interesting ways. She uses really random and interesting materials to wrap her presents. She has a saying which is “kindness is contagious”. She wrapped her presents while listening to rap music :)
