GML Field Recorder Challenge (€1,200)
A design challenge to create an easily reproducible DIY device that can unobtrusively record graffiti motion data during a graffiti writer’s normal practice in the city.
The GML Field Recorder Challenge is a DIY hardware and software solution for unobtrusively recording graffiti motion data during a graffiti writer’s normal practice in the city. The winning project will be an easy to follow instruction set that can be reproduced by graffiti writers and amateur technologists. The goal is to create a device that will document a night of graffiti bombing into an easily retrievable series of Graffiti Markup Language (.gml) files while not interfering with the normal process of writing graffiti. The solution should be easy to produce, lightweight, open source, cheap, secure, and require little to no setup and calibration. The first person or team to create the device and publish corresponding source code and HOW TO guides (as outlined in the rules) will receive €1,200. For a complete list of design requirements go to graffitimarkuplanguage.com/challenges/gml-field-recorder-challenge.
The GML Field Recorder Challenge (including the prize money) is funded entirely by Constant, which is a non-profit interdisciplinary arts-lab that is based and active in Brussels since 1997.
