Swept Away by Linda Florence is not your average old-school chalkboard. Instead, it is a floor chalkboard covered with a detailed floral decal. The project took a lot of patience and time to complete and boasts a beautiful, repeated pattern. The wallpaper pattern is emblematic of British artist Linda Florence’s style. Florence’s biography goes into further detail, stating she has a tendency to do, “hand printed wallpaper and installation artwork for public, commercial and domestic interiors.”

The chalkboard floor installation is part of the Swept Away Projects being exhibited New York Museum of Art and Design. The aim of the projects are to have an interactive portion that allows audiences to witness and experience the artists as they interact with varying substances such as dust, sand, dirt, or in this case, chalk.
