PHILIP RAE(light bombing)
Philip has been developing what he calls Light Bombing, a digital alternative to graffiti art. In response to political issues surrounding the acceptance of traditional graffiti, a permanent painting in public view. Phil decided to push the boundaries of this acceptance and develop a less permanent but still publicly accessible form of graffiti. This has resulted in a project he calls, Light Bombing. Using traditional aesthetics and artistic development of graffiti, Phil has digitized this artform. He projects this artwork through a digital projector, throwing his graffiti across the city on night light missions.
