Graffiti 2.0

The picture and video are part of a project called Tagged in Motion, created by Jung von Matt/next, a German interactive communication agency. Here’s how this works. A graffiti artist is outfitted with virtual reality glasses and begins to draw. Three motion capture camera capture his movements as he draws using a virtual spray can. The glasses allow the artist to see the artwork in 3D as it is being drawn. A Bluetooth controller helps the artist choose color, strength of brushstroke and texture of his/her work.
