Odio (Hatred) Supakitch & Koralie Docu. Calligraffiti. Mr.


Niels ‘Shoe’ Meulman from Holland does something called “calligraffiti”. Now, I am not sure what to make of all this, to be quite honest. To me it kind of sort of looks like someone who has had some calligraphy-classes and wasn’t to bad at it, and then decided to make it a lot cooler by suggesting it has something to do with graffiti… Oh well, I guess everybody is allowed to make a living somehow. And it does result in some nice calligra…phyti…thingies. Especially the one who look like they are still wet. Check it out, perhaps watch the video, and tell me what you think. Let’s check out what Mr Shoe looks like in person on this video, found on the Nalden blog, which I hear is the site to be these days. If you want to know more, Niels Meulman has a book out with plenty of examples of his work. Me, I’m still not convinced. (Found via Technorati Tags: calligraffiti. Street Art: Nunca.

Painting Q Pop. GraffitiMarkupLanguage. Say what?


Graffiti Markup Language (.gml) is a universal, XML based, open file format designed to store graffiti motion data (x and y coordinates and time). The format is designed to maximize readability and ease of implementation, even for hobbyist programmers, artists and graffiti writers. Popular applications currently implementing GML include Graffiti Analysis and EyeWriter. Beyond storing data, a main goal of GML is to spark interest surrounding the importance (and fun) of open data and introduce open source collaborations to new communities. GML is intended to be a simple bridge between ink and code, promoting collaborations between graffiti writers and hackers. Yeah, I know…. (Trailer) from Evan Roth on Vimeo.

Jason Eppink's The Shadow Machine

“The Shadow Machine is a hand-made analog projection system that reanimates two blacksmiths from the late 1800’s, photographed by Eadweard Muybridge and compiled on plate #374 of his Animal Locomotion series. The Shadow Machine was conceived of and created for the The Underbelly Project, an extraordinary, unauthorized exhibition of more than one hundred international street artists in an abandoned subway station in New York City. The Shadow Machine’s projected, ghostly figures hammer away in complete darkness at the far end of the platform, ever-toiling spirits working on a never-finished station that was abandoned generations ago. Inside the Machine, six frames hand-painted on clear plexiglass operate as gobos when lit from behind by narrow beam LEDs. A light sequence, controlled by an Arduino board with custom software using a 9V battery, casts each successive shadow in a loop.”...
