There is good graffiti and then there’s bad graffiti.  There’s also what I call “co-op graffiti” where a piece gets continually added and added upon leaving us with an organic work of art that is in a continuous state of change.  Recently, some clever designer invented a graffiti can that uses an LED light with motion capture technology to capture the movement and direction of each squiggle and movement of the artist’s hand as he/she creates their tag.
