In a rapidly vacating city, street art makes Baltimore beautiful.
We will establish street art as a sub culture and focus on two characters in the Baltimore wheat pasting scene with additional footage of supporting voices. Many street artists in Baltimore are interested in the various effects of street art, ranging from beautification/gentrification of an area to simple public egotism. By analyzing the different types of street art through the eyes of wheat pasters, we will look at how street art has changed Baltimore neighborhoods, as well as legal versus illegal postings and what effects they have on a community.

found this new video from SWEATSHOPPE painting videos”all over Berlin, London, Belgrade, Bristol and Paris. they’ve created a new interactive technology to create the illusion that they are painting videos onto wall… it’s pretty wild like nothing i’ve ever seen before you guys should definitely check this out… here is what i copied from their vimeo:
SWEATSHOPPE aka Blake Shaw and Bruno Levy are back from Europe with a new video that showcases their live interactive video wheatpaste in Berlin, Bristol, Belgrade, London and Paris. Over a two week period the duo pasted their videos in over 10 spots including the Berlin Wall, Les Invalides, Cordy House and even constructed a 5 meter telescopic electronic paint roller to create a two-story tall video painting in Bristol.
Video painting is a technology the duo developed that allows them to create the illusion that they are painting videos onto walls with electronic paint rollers they built. It works through custom software that they wrote that tracks the position of the paint rollers and projects video wherever they choose to paint, allowing them to explore the relationship between video, mark making and architecture and create live video collages in real time.
