Hamburg based new media agency Jung von Matt/next have produced an interactive graffiti wall called Nextwall. The 30m wall was painted by graffiti artists Aim, Tasek, Daddy Cool, Desur and Seak over 5 days in April 2007 – of course, the entire process was filmed and streamed online in real time.

The wall now serves as an experimental platform for different technologies. By capturing Semacodes on the wall you can download goodies for your mobile such as wallpapers showing the Matroschka characters, videos about the participating artists and the creation of the wall. You can also leave comments and messages to friends on the wall's digital pinboard. And if you're still a little confused as to what else is hidden behind the wall, a comprehensive info guide can also be downloaded via Bluetooth.
