The artist cleaned the gutter of New York’s 5th Avenue running in the north-south direction from the corner of the 143th Street and 5th Avenue to Washington Square Park. In one day, he cleaned the track between the road and the pavement using a small broom and a dustbin.
He collected six twelve-gallon bags of trash, which he exhibited on the pavement in front of the entrance to the gallery on 5th Avenue where he participated in a group exhibition. The performance was also documented with photographs exhibited inside the gallery space.
