From September 26th to 30th 2011 several members of GRL Germany had the chance to be part of this years International Urban Art Festival “Sexto Asalto“!
Based in the City of Zaragoza in central Spain, graffiti artists from all over Europe and Spain were invited to do walls in the old-town. Graffiti Research Lab Germany was represented with a talk, two workshops (Creative Code and GML) a hand full of mushroom Throwies, the launch of bombIR 2.0 and of course a night out with blitzTag. Here some video from a truly inspiring, busy and VERY sunny week!
GRL Germany is participating in Makerplatz and the People in Beta Festival this weekend. Details of our activities below.
Mushroom Throwies | Saturday Oct 1 13:00 + | Planet Modulor Hof (U-bahn Moritzplatz)
Pilz throwies are small textile objects with magnets which can be thrown onto ferro metallic surfaces in and out of reach. This workshop will give you the chance to learn how to sew your own mushroom-shaped yarn throwie. Plant it public space as a soft graffiti intervention!
Light Rider & blitzTag | Saturday Oct 1 | 20:00 + | Moritzplatz area
GRL Germany will bring our mobile projection unit, the Light Rider, to Makerplatz, and light up the walls with laser-based digital graffiti. Connecting the various spaces of the Makerplatz and People in Beta Festival, we’ll provide interactive, light-based options to transform these spaces, allowing the public to use the city as their canvas.
These events are part of Makerplatz & the People in Beta Festival
‘sup kids ?!?
Video still under production, but here are some quick shots from last Friday’s action.
Word ’em Up to Street Lab, Prinzessinen Garten, Licht Piraten, and all the writers and public who came out and DIDN’t draw a penis.
In case you missed SVG2BVG at transmediale11, GRL Germany will have the complete set-up running for the Cognitive Cities Conference on Sunday Feb 27. CoCities will be a couple days of intense ideas around the future of cities, including a full day of free activities, exhibitions and workshops …

We’re very excited to be part of Street Lab Meets Berlin in March. We’re planning a night of urban projections on Friday March 11 … featuring blitzTag. Check back soon for more details. Should be a fun time for all.
GRL_DE is prototyping a new Laser Tag software, with a whole suite of new features. Like GRL Vienna’s Processing-based Laser Marker, this is NOT meant to be a replacement to Theo’s and the MotherCell’s version, just a different flavour, with slightly different capabilities.
This is just a preview… more visuals and source code coming soon…
