PWN THE WALL Vancouver/Berlin/Seoul 2012

PWN THE WALL was a digital graffiti intervention connecting Vancouver, Berlin, and Seoul,  Oct 12-14, 2012.  It was supported by the Goethe Institut’s Satellite program in Vancouver, and the Canada Council for the Arts.
A Project by the Goethe-Institut in cooperation with Graffiti Research Lab Canada, Graffiti Research Lab Germany, W2 Community Media Arts, Platoon Cultural Development and Revised Projects

PWN THE WALL was a 25 hour interactive digital graffiti event connecting Vancouver, Berlin, and Seoul. Created by GRL members in Canada, Germany, and South Korea, PWN THE WALL uses open-source technology to collapse geographical space through a real-time telematic exchange. Simultaneous live digital painting events in all three cities showcased local graffiti writers. The installation was interactive and open to the public for the duration of  PWN THE WALL.
PWN THE WALL continued our collaboration with German colleagues at GRL Germany. After working together to create ‘Light Rider’ (mobile projection bike) and Original G-Code (live drawing to 3-D fabrication system), our collectively-run groups developed the technology to produce digital graffiti that was live-streamed and re-projected, collapsing geographical space through a series of public events and ongoing interactive installations. GRL Canada Members include Jesse Scott & Mirae Rosner with Semiramis Ceylan, Hauke Altmann and Achim Kern comprising the main team at GRL Germany.
The final installation took the form of a networked 3-Channel video installation, with one interactive screen for each city, and two screens that represent real time updates from the interactive screens in the other two cities. During certain times, commissioned graffiti writers created custom pieces on the interactive wall, and these pieces were also projected on a much larger surface, drawing remote graffiti on the local, urban fabric.
We coded and produced and distributing this project exclusively through open-source tools and technologies. PWN THE WALL furthers our ongoing commitment to urban interventions that take graffiti into the digital age through open approaches to community and technology.

The screen setup from left to right: Vancouver, Berlin, Seoul...first I had to learn how to change the colors and the  caps on the one touch display. Once you got it, its like learning to bycicle
t

doin the first steps of trying out the lightcan...in a Dripmodus.

..the paint appear half second after pushing the cap, on the screen..best results came with using the Fatcap 

I started to go in Interconnection with the guys in Seoul on the right and also Vancouver on the left jumped in and so we started to do a collabo live painting, which is sadly not showed on these pictures, because the session took about 4 hours at all...

Platoon dogtag number. Iam very thankfull to been invited into this projekt, which was a new experince for me. Painting with digital light was alot of fun. Thanks to all the "back to the Graffiti-future" people from PWN and exspecially the Goethe-Institut for using their satellite in the orbit.
