Last week, F.A.T. introduced the Graffiti Markup Language (GML), a new XML file type specifically designed for archiving graffiti tags. Of course it doesn’t make sense to only archive those tags, you should also be able to reproduce them. And that’s exactly what Golan Levin and Jeremy Ficca did. They wrote a small tool to translate the .GML files from into instructions for their industrial ABB IRB-4400 robot arm. If they now could place his robot on a truck like Evan Roth suggested
Here you can find some more details about the Robotagger.

DustTag is an iPhone application designed for graffiti writers that visualizes the motion involved in the creation of a tag. It is basically the iPhone version of Evan Roth his Graffiti Analysis tool, just with a little less bells and whistles but some typical iPhone features. You can write tags on the iPhone and upload them as .gml files (Graffiti Markup Language) to the website. Evan designed this app together with Chris Sugrue. Support them and buy this app for just $1.99!

This is how my tag looks like when the .gml file was loaded into the Graffiti Analysis tool. Thanks Evan.

Video Painting

October 22nd, 2009

Yes, we’ve seen enough graffiti-light-painting movies and pictures. But this little concept by Sweat Shoppe is quite nice. They developed a technique to project video footage on a canvas, vitually painted by a LED-lit paint roller.
What? Just watch the video.
