The Subconcious Art of Graffiti Removal

Not to make this a Miranda-July blog, but here's a film I mentioned in the comments earlier. It's from 2001, and Ms. July narrated it, and it's called "The Subconscious Art of Graffiti Removal." This here is how the Web site describes it to y'all:

Emerging from the human psyche and showing characteristics of abstract expressionism, minimalism and Russian constructivism, graffiti removal has secured its place in the history of modern art while being created by artists who are unconscious of their artistic achievements.

It's about the paint they put over graffiti to make the downtown all pretty-like.

You can watch a six-minute excerpt of it here, so long as you have above-dial-up modem speeds and the patience to handle the really annoying background noise.

Matt McCormick is the director. He also made the video for YACHT's "See a Penny, Pick It Up." Same deal w/ Quicktime and all that magic.
