AIR-INK



AIR-INK by Graviky Labs is made out of air pollution particulate matter – namely the unburned carbon soot you see coming out of the exhaust pipe of cars, chimneys, generators and more. By using 30ml of AIR-INK, you can negate 45 minutes worth of pollution.
AIR-INK is currently available as 2mm, 15mm, 30mm and 50mm markers, and a 150ml screen printing ink set. If this campaign is a success, we will be able to work towards releasing oil based paints, fabric paints, outdoor paints, and more.

Street Art Time Machine

De curand cei de la Google au lansat in cadrul Google Maps/Street View o optiune foarte frumoasa care iti permite sa vizualizezi traseele din Street View in functie de perioada in care acestea au fost realizate, functionand ca o masina a timpului.
Direct din prezentarea acestei noi functiuni (video-ul se gaseste putin mai jos) se poate observa ca este foarte utila daca vrei sa vezi evolutia locurilor, fiind de un mare ajutor in studiul de caz in foarte multe domenii, iar poate cel mai simplu, fiind prezentat succint si in video, este evolutia graffiti-ului. Iar pentru Bucuresti, am gasit cel mai bun exemplu calcanul de pe strada Arthur Verona, care cu ocazia evenimentuli Street Delivery a fost mereu re-desenat.

Si am realizat si cateva imagini pentru gardul de vis-a-vis.
Intr-un final totul depinde de cate ori au trecut cei de la Google Maps, iar pentru un oras ca Bucuresti, momentan au trecut decat de 3-4 ori, fata de alte orase din afara/State unde astfel de treceri in timp sunt mult mai dese.

Near Tag Quality



NTQ (Near Tag Quality) este o “ustensila” realizata de Graffiti Research Lab Franta, fiind un proiect care se foloseste de Arduino avand in gand a fi cat mai usor realizabil, pentru o suma cat mai mica si sa fie opensource.

Chalkbot



Dupa txtBOMBER ramanem la “roboti” programabili care scriu texte pe diferite medii, si prezentam CHALKBOT, un proiect destul de vechi, realizat de DeepLocal / StandardRobot si promovat prin 2009-2010 de catre Nike.
Developed in partnership with DeepLocal and StandardRobot, the Chalkbot in appearance is similar to an ink jet printer, except at a much larger scale. The trailer mounted device is fully self-contained and pneumatically spray out either messages or graphics. The device will debut at the 2nd Stage of 2009 Tour de France on July 5th.

txtBOMBER



The txtBOMBER is a one-hand-guerillia-tool – a machine not much bigger than a pressing iron – that generates political statements on the fly and immidiately prints them on any flat surface.
If you feel you are part of our modern viewless generation, the txtBOMBER is the perfect tool for you! Just switch it on, it’s powered by a strong battery. And move it along a wall. It’s that easy to show your (?) its (?) someones (?) opinion of something (?) someone?! Hell! You should reconsider whether you’re keen enough to use it!

Air Graffiti


AIR Graffiti is an innovative and exciting software that lets participants easily create digital graffiti using a laptop, projection screen, and infrared spray cans.

When the guest presses on an infrared spray can, the infrared light is tracked by the computer to create a vibrant, colorful drawing. Afterwards, the graffiti can be printed as a photo, shared on social media, saved as an electronic file, and saved as a video of the drawing process. The guest can choose colors to spray, use stencils, or apply specialized painting methods. Air Graffiti also includes backgrounds and branded covers, so you can easily add your logo or a customer’s logo for giveaways.
