Storyline

Graffiti removal: the act of removing tags and graffiti by painting over them. Subconscious art: a product of artistic merit that was created without conscious artistic intentions. It is no coincidence that funding for "anti-graffiti" campaigns often outweighs funding for the arts. Graffiti removal has subverted the common obstacles blocking creative expression and become one of the more intriguing and important art movements of our time. 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 is funny for a few minutes, and enjoyable throughout.
5 September 2005 | by thomasmazawaSee all my reviews

I saw this film in my experimental cinema class. As I recall, there was a similar initial reaction to the film as producer-3's comment states. Although, we all seemed to enjoy the entire thing. The woman on the bike was one of my favorite parts of the short film. I believe the visuals of this film and especially the soundtrack really created quite the convincing tone.

What I mean to say is that it is understood that on some level this is meant to be funny. And yet in almost the same breath, the film communicates a real honesty and feeling of professionalism in film-making. For all intensive purposes, the film can be viewed as a documentary and not a mockumentary, and on this same wavelength exists a very creative and refreshing experience.
