Speaking of action painting, performance art duo Bruno Levy and Blake Shaw ( aka Sweatshoppe ) have taken it to the next level by coming up with a way to “paint with video”.
From what we understand there is no actual paint involved. Instead the rollers have LEDs which are motion tracked by a projector yielding the results seen in the video above. This is a very cool idea and we wouldn’t be surprised to see a lot more of this in the future. Sweatshoppe developed the software that drives this themselves and are said to be releasing it to the public as they work out some of the bugs.

    You did see the Graffiti Research Lab’s Laser Tag system that’s been around for a while now right? They’ve even modified it to allow tagging by eye tracking only, so that their disabled friend can still tag.

    I assume this is what you’re talking about because it’s fucking ridiculous.

    this is sooooooo cool. i cant wait till i can see this stuff in person. whoever thought of this, in my opinion, is a true genius. its graffitti, yet its not damaging anything. hopfully people start doing this instead of actual graffitti cuz thats not legal. but this might be expensive for a while…
