Graffiti Analysis 2.0 takes live tags and transforms them into active 3D animations. The project is by Evan Roth and software development by Chris Sugrue and was recently showcased at the BLK River Festival in Vienna.
During the Olympic Games in 2008 James Powderly traveled to Beijing in order to support the group “Students for a free Tibet”. The Idea was to go there and do a L.A.S.E.R. Tag performance. Before he was able to do so he was arrested and sentenced to 10 days of prison. When the games were over he was set free and sent home, where he decided to publish the story as a comic book together with Jihoi Lee. In the interview he tells us about the time in prison and the comic book that was exhibited at the Blackriver Festival in Vienna.
This is the L.A.S.E.R. Tag Video by GRL, for everybody who is not familiar with the project:
