Graffiti Research Lab
Vancouver/Toronto/Ottawa/Montreal, Canada

Working within a milieu of programmers, hacktavists, audio-visualists, installation artists, and critical theorists, GRL focuses on the thresholds of street culture and in the micro-/macro-struggles that take place within the realm(s) of media ecologies. We act as an agent for technology enabling, media democratization, and cultural bridging opportunities. Nuit Blanche will premiere "bombIR" - an infrared-LED equipped spray can that allows writers to physically paint with light. Local graf artists will reference 1930"s era agit-prop images from social movements in Toronto in the depression era. GRL Canada develops open source projects in collaboration with a teamof analog graffiti writers and designers including Rhek, Virus, and The Dark in Vancouver, as well as Fluke and Axe in Montreal. We invite writers from Toronto to contact us via our website for this exhibit.
