New installation from Txtual Healing

I really like what the Txtual Healing artists do and the latest project, DripTxt is no exception. They've taken a famous (Jesus Saves) graffiti artist's tag style and made it into a font. They they ask the public to text in their message to their system, it then formats it into the graffiti artist's style and projects on to a massive wall - the latest ones being in Brooklyn, New York. They've also created a video to show more about how it works which is worth a look too.

Way back in 2003, I came up with a similar concept for a client who was putting on a Hip Hop event. No, honestly, I did! It was all about creating your own graffiti tag although we didn't plan to project on to buildings at the time. Maybe we'd have won the business if that's what we had proposed...
