In “I Make Maintenance Art One Hour Every Day” Mierle Laderman Ukeles accompanied @NYCSanitation workers on their shifts, and asked permission to take Polaroids as they polished floors, cleaned toilets, and fixed elevators. She then asked whether the photograph depicted their hour of art or seven hours of work—and applied an appropriate label with their decision.
