Survey Take Part (Manifesto)
We are gathering texts for the graffiti. The Binary Graffiti Club inspires young people to see the fabric of the city as means to create change. The walls, pavements, and empty spaces are appropriated to express the hopes of our generation. Binary coded messages appear in the streets as unique graffiti artworks. As the project is developing more messages will appear. The idea and core concept is to inspire young people to see the city as a means to create change and to see the environment as their city space, a canvas for expression. What mark will you make? Please tell us what you want to see written and coded into the streets. Share with us your thoughts and tell us what you want written and made into graffiti. Please fill in our survey. http://thebinarygraffiticlub.com/survey/781215
