Electronic graffiti artists win laser cutter contest

Craft & Design

The fine folks at Graffiti Research Labs have won the Instrucatbles Laser Cutter Contest. I was honored to be one of the judges in the contest. It was an amazing group of finalists, with both impressive projects and equally impressive Instructables. The winning project was a low-budget camera special F/X rig GRL used in a rap video to recreate the “bullet time” effect from The Matrix.

“This will be the cornerstone of our new lab space,” said GRL member fi5e. “A whole crew of creative people are really excited to put this thing to use! Thanks for helping us bring the VersaLaser to Brooklyn.”
