Digital Graffiti

Turns out Abe is already working on a video graffiti project with his art group Four Seven. They use a mobile digital projection system to transform “the architecture of the city into a video canvas. Graffiti is built out of pure light.” My main questions about this system is: how much does a setup like this cost? I have the feeling adequate equipment is going to be prohibitively expensive. Of course I don’t expect the video graffiti movement’s materials to be as cheap as spray paint, but it shouldn’t cost more than a couple hundred bucks.

On the bright side, projecting video on blank walls might not even qualify as “graffiti” in the legal sense of the word.

I wonder if some form of SMS or ringtone spamming/hacking might be more efficient.


  1. Abe posted a pretty lengthy run down of what they’re using over at Margin Walker:

    It is indeed prohibitively expensive and bulky and only works at night. A day light projector would run about $15,000.
