LED-Throwies at CYNETART Dresden

Last weekend GRL Berlin ran a wonderful LED-Throwie workshop at CYNETART festival in Dresden. Around 20 motivated participants joined in to make red, green, blue and yellow LED-Throwies – oh yes, no messing around there with colors – each color had its own table! One dark underpass at the Neustadt neighborhood got lucky to be picked as the new home of 700 shining Throwies.

Light Bombing Sessions @ Festival de la cite, Lausanne 2013

Art can never be crime!

During the festival de la cite in Lausanne (9th – 14th of july 2013, 2013.festivalcite.ch), we presented a brand new version of bombIR, an open source tool for digital graffiti using customized spraycans, infrared tracking and powerful projectors. Featuring graffiti writers Alesh One and Cren One from Berlin and some great anonymous graffiti writers from Lausanne.

bombIR has been created with processing . A psmove controller and the psmoveapi is used to connect the spraycans with the software. You can download the bombIR source code from github.


Ready for take off


While facing a number of site specific and technology specific challenges we are getting closer to the opening of the “Cité”.  Very helpful, friendly, capable staff is making our set up here run relatively smooth  – Swiss summer and a beautyful scenery helps as well. Got some local graph writers testing the installation last night…

We’ll keep you updated!


LIGHT BOMBING at Lausanne City Festival

Simulation Light Bombing

Take a can in your hand and bomb on a building – all over – with light – no ladder or rope required. Graffiti Research Lab Germany presents a new generation of digital graffiti for physical architecture. Manipulating the look of a well known building, using your imagination, leaving your mark and your message, owning it for an evening. LIGHT BOMBIMG lets you interact with what seemed static, grey and unchangable with a push on a spray nozzle and a simple stroke of your hand.

If you are around, join us for our next event at Lausanne, Switzerland!
