White Paint Spills in Public Places

FILM: Owen D. Davey

The above video is a ten-minute essay by Owen D. Davey about why he photographs white paint spills in public places and encourages others to do the same. White Paint Spills In Public Places is an ongoing archival project in which Davey uses his own photographs and those contributed by members of the public to draw attention to white paint spills in public places and to research into the potential meditative benefits of continually acknowledging their abundant existence, both as individuals and as a community.
