As part of its Street Summer season of programming and events, Channel 4 has created an iPhone app called Street Tag that allows users to virtually graff any wall or surface they fancy using their iPhones…

I’m personally a fan of spraypainting actual walls, but I can see how this could be kinda fun as an app.

Graffiti Taxonomy: Paris, 2009 from Evan Roth on Vimeo.

The always-interesting Evan Roth put together “a study of 180 letters as written by 180 different graffiti writers” in Paris. Check out the interactive viewer, or just see the quick video

With the help of a new pie chart stencil by interactive media artist Golan Levin, creating politically charged graffiti just got a bit easier. The fully customizable “Infoviz Graffiti” toolkit allows users to quickly swap out the numbers and letters and adjust the slice of the pie.

Yesterday morning in Sofia, Bulgaria, anti-Communist street artists painted over a monument commemorating the 10th anniversary of the Soviet “liberation” (i.e. a Communist coup d’état) of Bulgaria in 1944. Who did they add to the statue? The Joker, among others.

I turned the side of an abandoned house in my neighborhood into a giant chalkboard where residents can fill in the blank and remember what is important to them in life. It’s also about turning a neglected space into a constructive one where we can learn the hopes and aspirations of the people around us. It turns out this entire process has been a great lesson, experience, and project in itself – more on that later.

The responses and stories from passers-by while we were installing it have already hit me hard in the heart.

Check out the wall of responses after one day!… Photo strip here!
