Graffitizer 3

Graffitizer 3 is part of a series of installations that I’ve created in different iterations, in which drawing machines implement a process that I call GraffitizationThe (computational) process that applies the stylistic principles of graffiti art to computer generated forms.

In this iteration, I explore the use of drips, which are a common and often desirable feature of graffiti tags made with a marker. I built a custom drawing machine that uses a modified pump marker that has continuous supply of ink. The ink flows to the pen causing it to drip, which results in an unique machine generated drawing, and eventually leaves a permanent trace on the wall on which the machine is mounted.
