The installation of Wrapped Floor and Stairway was completed on May 20, 1969, and remained in place until June 6, 1969.

The entire floor of the gallery, which had been emptied of everything and then painted white, as well as the Flemish staircase with its banister and handrail were covered with house painters' cotton drop cloths.   

Although the transformation was minimal, it drastically altered the space, generating an atmosphere of silence and spiritual tranquility.

As visitors walked on the fabric it changed into rhythmic ripples and folds with a high degree of textural surface and nuance.
