“A small (about 4 sq. meters) area of sidewalk should be cleaned by Fluxus performers in a very thorough way, but using devices not normally used in streets such as: steel wool, steel brushes, powder cleaners, dental picks, toothbrushes, bleaches, cotton balls and alcohol, etc. etc.”
Waxman’s reflections: “These are the places where walking happens — to signal them as something worth caring for is to ennoble both pedestrianism and its ground.”
