The Subconscious Art of Graffiti Removal

Dec 4, 2011






Artist and filmmaker, Matt McCormick created a film connecting graffiti removal with characteristics of abstract expressionism, minimalism and Russian constructivism. Implying that “buffing” was created by artists who are unconscious of their artistic achievements and deserving of a place in the history of modern art. The video includes Narration from artist/actor Miranda July and was mostly shot on 16mm.
