Digital graffiti

Filed under: Uncategorized — Mordred @ 16:45

99rooms is a unique internet art project that interweaves wall painting, photography, animation and sound in a manner entirely unknown until now. Shortly after its launch in June 2004, more than two million individuals throughout the world have already visited this interdisciplinary composite work of art.

I dubbed it “digital graffiti” for lack of a better term - it is maybe a game, or a gallery, or plans for urban art. You have to see it to grok it.

While I’m on the graffiti wave, be sure not to miss (real life ™ ) graffiti artist Banksy, whose other speciality is hanging fake specimens in various art and natural exhibitions around the world (sample on the right).

Btw, follow this link (and click Next) for some pages that are not linked on his site.

Also, check out his guide to stencil graffiti:

A guide to cutting stencils

• Think from outside the box.

• Collapse the box and take a fucking sharp knife to it.

• Leave the house before you find something worth staying in for.

• Spray the paint sparingly onto the stencil from a distance of 8 inches.

space invader
Another fine example is the space invasion happening in cities around the world, but originally started in Paris. You see, the aliens are appearing everywhere! They must be
stopped! Yes, indeed, somebody is trying to place spaceships under the aliens, or they will invade all Earth.

Try this flickr tag for a huge (~1100) gallery of them.
