What do the changes in graffiti say about us culturally?
From Basquiat, to Bansky, and now GRL, graffiti has a way of forecasting where culture is going — as much as it comments on the social issues of today. This becomes clearer when we think about the move from graffiti into the art world, its new focus in public art with the rise of the blogosphere (and its documentation capabilities) and finally its application with more ephemeral and portable technologies.
This current project by TECH|DISOBEY|LAB shows the potential for recycled electronics, clean energy, and sound to enter further into the dialogue of Street Art. Watch a demo of this innovative project below.
