Lou Mallozzi & Joseph Clayton Mills - Queen Sweep

from by Various Artists



The artists swept the floor of the ESS recording studio, empty save
the grand piano. They used the collected dirt, combined with charcoal, graphite, and conte crayon, to make thirty-nine 18-inch square rubbings of the wood floor. Simultaneously, they recorded the process from close and distant perspectives. The rubbings were photographed, and the resulting
images were layered into three 13-image groups in Photoshop, generating the final images for the three screens used in the printing. The recordings were edited and layered in a similar accumulative fashion to distill the movements, gestures, and textures of the original two-hour process into a single 13-minute piece.
