Graffiti Analysis

Graffiti Analysis 2.0 is a project created by Evan Roth in which the motion data of a graffiti tag is recorded, analyzed and archived in a free and open database. For Graffiti Analysis MFF2010, local artists, illustrators, graffiti artists and the general public will be invited to record and submit their gestural creations, a selection of which will be displayed throughout the Media Facade Festival 2010. All tags created in Graffiti Analysis are saved as Graffiti Markup Language (GML) files, a new digital standard used by other graffiti applications Roth has helped develop, including Laser Tag and EyeWriter.
