TEXAS BIG FACE: GRAFFITI RESEARCH LAB BACK AGAIN

Graffiti Research Lab is a group of pranksters, graffiti writers and hackers devoted to having fun in public. One part mayhem mixed with a side of interactive art installation. You may remember them from their work with LED Throwiesor their graffiti laser tag which projects graffiti onto buildings.

For this edition, GRL Houston brings us Texas Big Face, the projection of a person’s face onto a piece of sculpture or even another person’s body to transform that object into a piece of interactive art. In short, hella cool.

Kirk Moreno and David Sutherland from GRL Houston sought out artist David Adickes, a Texas sculptor, known for his all-sculptures. All-white makes the perfect backdrop for a piece of interactive projection.

In this video, Sutherland and Adickes present the project and give a how-to instructional for those wanting to build one at home.

I’ve noticed that there is no GRL LA. Here’s a how to on building a GRL in your city. Head’s up LA!
