Graffiti Markup Language is the latest F.A.T. project. You probably know their graffiti-related software projects: Graffiti Analysis, Laser Tag and EyeWriter. These use now the Graffiti Markup Language, a new XML file type specifically designed for archiving graffiti tags. The .gml text files can be uploaded and downloaded on 000000book.com. The week F.A.T. will publish new GML related projects each day!
The Graffiti Reseach Lab, known for their LED throwies and their Laser Tag, made a DVD of their first Season. The first screening will be this saturday at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. You can attend too, but be quick to get yourself a ticket! More info here, the trailer you can watch here and here you can find the torrent.
Two months ago the White Glove Tracking project was launched. Users were asked to locate Michael Jacksons white glove in a ‘Billy Jean’ live performance video, by drawing a yellow rectangle over it. After 72 hours the job was done, all 10,060 frames were analyzed. Now, they released all the data, the coordinates of the rectangles, and video material for you to use and mash-up. There are already some samples in the gallery, one uses the height of the glove to adjust the speed, an other one always displays the glove centered and at the same size.
This project is related to the Eyebeam Research Lab and the Graffiti Research Lab.
Josh Nimoy got together with the GRL at OFFF 2007 and coded a new brush for their L.A.S.E.R. Tag. He also made it available to us as a desktop tool to play around with. So you can download the GRL Graffiti Brush here.
