When Light Graffiti Meets Performance Art

Posted by on November 6th, 2010

JörgMiedza_ JanWöllert_Light

From tonyleather over at EnvironmentalGraffiti:

LAPP-Pro is a Bremen, Germany-based duo that specializes in light art performance photography, often accompanied by music. Jörg Miedza and Jan Wöllert have been working together since the autumn of 2007, although both have photographic connections going back many years. The basic concept of LAPP was invented by Jan, accidentally trapped overnight in an old industrial complex in Bremen, back in the summer of 2007. He amused himself by making shapes and patterns with some LED lamps, quickly realising that he had discovered a new way of creating photographs.

Descended from light drawing, the basis of their work are long-time exposures, with moving light sources used to create luminous light sculptures that are captured in photographs. Many compositions consist of up to 20 single steps between the opening and closure of the shutter. This requires that, apart from imagination, fantasy and creativity, the performer must have body control to achieve the exact pace of synchronised steps with the handling and distribution of lights. It is very much a performance that must in many cases be rehearsed before the images are made for real.

COMBO

Posted by on October 16th, 2009

Awesome roving camerawork documents huge great graffiti pieces being painted on the walls, floor and roofs of a derelict courtyard over ten days, and stop-motion animation techniques bring it all to life. Add weird layers of sound design and a looping pattern to melt your mind even more, and this stuff feels like the graffiti-meets-film making equivalent of avant-garde jazz. Even stacks of wood and the crumbling walls themselves become characters in the animation.

Grow Your Own Graffiti

Posted by on August 14th, 2009

A green form of graff. This I like.

Ingredients:

  • Two handfuls (or more, get lots) of moss
  • 2 cups of yoghurt
  • 2 cups of beer (you can use water if you want, but beer seems to hold it together a little bit better)
  • 1/2 tsp. sugar
  • Corn syrup (optional – for making it spreadable and sticky)

Wash/tease as much of the dirt from the moss as you can. Throw it, the yoghurt, beer and sugar into a blender and blend until a lovely smooth consistency. if it looks like it’s going to drip when you paint it, add the corn syrup to the mix.

When finding somewhere to paint, look for something porous (most older or rough concrete walls are perfect). Once you’ve painted your design, its suggested that you come back every week or to spray it with water, to help the moss along.

Check out Anna Garforth (her site is here), a dedicated moss artist.

The Graffiti of Aberdeen and Edinburgh

Posted by on March 8th, 2009

Sent by A Radio Well, via email:

“These were taken around the cities of Aberdeen and Edinburgh a little over a year ago.”

A Radio Well also brings us a Library Mystery to solve:

“These next three are notably peculiar. They were part of a set of posters all over the city of Aberdeen, these three were an individual peice. Each peice told a story about a certain feature the city of Stockholm, with an accompanying photograph refering to the little paragraph of information. All of the paragraphs of information ended with a reference to a source called “Adams, 2006″, something that I haven’t been able to find any trace of on the Internet. The only other piece I remember seeing personally was something about flooded, unused underground tunnels that one can easily explore with a makeshift canoe, the accompanying picture being of a man in a trenchcoat and feder hat doing exactly that.”

I went searching the net myself and I didn’t find anything either. Anyone have any information on this hidden keys mystery?

Thanks again to A Radio Well for the words and photos.
