Light Is The New Graffiti
As you may have noticed, we like to explore the boundaries of contemporary street art. In the past we wrote about topics such as confetti graffiti, fluorescent tape art and projections that address the issue of street safety at night. This one is another example illustrating the expanding scope of the street art scene. All you need is a camera with good Long Exposure option, a light and, most important, a healthy dose of inspiration.
Artists like Jaron Korvinus already experimented with this form of ’10 seconds street art’, loose from wall or stoop. Check out the ‘Lightdrawing’ project on his website. You can find many, many more pictures about light graffiti on Flickr. Some of the creations are outstanding and actually play with the urban environment.
