explore how a graffiti mural changes over time as existing images are painted over by new artists.
My aim for this project was to create an interface that works as an intuitive metaphor - pushing forward moves the user forward in time by displaying more recent images.
The artwork I used is from a graffiti mural in Central Square, Cambridge MA. The mural is frequently repainted, and by photographing the mural weekly I was able to capture the mural as it changed over time. Sometimes the changes were gradual evolutions; at other times the mural changed suddenly when large sections were completely painted over.
