Graffiti Research Lab

Lasers and Light Bombs Hit Ottawa

Watch for Graffiti Interventions Defacing a Neighborhood Near You. An Ottawa chapter of the Graffiti Research Lab has formed. In July 2009 GRL created 50 foot interventions taking graffiti to literally new heights! Using projectors, custom open source software, and laser pointers, graffiti writers twisted the tradition of tagging and bombing in an illuminating direction!

In the summer of 2009, Artengine welcomed Agent Scott from Graffiti Research Lab Canada for a 6 week residency in the lab. Agent Scott produced a massive projection intervention on the wall of the Rideau Center mall across from Artengine. During his residency Agent Scott reflected on GRL and it's creative potential.
