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.
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.
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!
Last testings in the garden. Last bits of glue applied to hacked spray cans. Last bugs spotted. Flight goes tomorrow…
Warm up for Light Bombing at the Festival de la Cité Lausanne all next week Tuesday until Sunday! From Thursday on with Alesh One and Cren flying in from Berlin! Fun!
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!
