'Erase All Aerosol'

Watch the video
The first exhibition began at the (con)Temporary Gallery and wound through the neighborhood. I passed out some books made of drawings on transparency paper. The first page in the book was a map with directions and the participant followed the diagram until reaching a large X on the ground. At these X's the transparencies could be held up and alligned with a drawing on the wall to make a new drawing. The book contained about a dozen drawings that gave life to blobs of paint left by city-workers who were trying to erradicate graffiti. The book was an attempt to compare the work of the graffit artist and the person erasing it.
