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.


Graffiti Research Lab Germany @ Katowice Street Art Festival 2013


Right now we are charging batteries, inflating tires and choosing hip hop tracks for the playlist… In short: we are getting ready for a blitztag and light rider session at the Katowice Street Art Festival 2013 in Katowice, Poland.

Join us to laser some walls. Let’s see what the Katowice writers are made of.

We will start our ride on saturday, 27th of april when it’s getting dark. Check our twitter account for updates on that day.

Bring your bike. We will change location at least once.

12./13./14. OCT: PWN THE WALL is coming up

Your piece. On a wall. In another city. On another continent. As you draw.

GRL members in Berlin, Vancouver and Seoul are preparing for PWN THE WALL, an interactive digital graffiti event, connecting Berlin with Vancouver and Seoul. We will open our 25 hour installation friday night at Platoon Kunsthalle, Schönhauser Allee 9. Read all about the event here.

A lot of preparation will be done before that to make it (at least for us) the event of the year. Feel free to visit us at Platoon the whole week before the event. We could always use a helping hand.

Pimp My Installation

To make the place as cosy as possible and inviting to lounge around during the event we are looking for furniture. If you’ve got a spare couch in your cellar or a floor lamp that you always wanted to get rid off or at least rent out for a weekend, contact us. We can organise the transport.

Note: We are not in the Platoon Kunsthalle itself but in a building behind the Kunsthalle.

More details to come.

Was ist GRL – LASER Tag Intro

Eine kurze Einführung in die Welt von GRL.

Laser tagging ist das beliebteste Kunstwerk. Einfach umzusetzen und jeder kann mit machen.

Kurz und Knapp: Eine Kamera filmt eine Hauswand ab, mit einem Laserpointer “schreibt” man etwas auf die Hauswand. Die Software dahinter merkt sich den Laserpointer und schreibt mit Hilfe eines Beamers das Graffiti an die Wand. Geht garantiert wieder ab 😉

Hier ein Video aus New York! (Bald kommen noch andere schöne Sachen)

Und noch was kleines aus Wien, Österreich
