“Light Criticism” graffiti art

Nycs Problem Web
Artists in NYC are using simple materials, and high tech tools (lasers) to make statements about advertising.

“This is the first collaboration between the Anti-Advertising Agency and the Graffiti Research Lab.

Bit and modified from Ji Lee’s Abstractor TV. We used black foam core ($10/sheet) cut with a laser cutter – but this project can be done with an x-acto blade, black paper, and duct tape. It can be repeated using any backlit display – bus shelters, display ads or television store windows.
