GML, or Graffiti Markup Language, is an open file format designed to store graffiti motion data.  It’s been used in projects like the EyeWriter, Graffiti Analysis, DustTag, and Laser Tag, all of which have been uploading GML tags to000000book.com, a site/database where graffiti writers are encouraged to share tags and computer programmers are invited to create new visualizations based on the resulting data.  The project aims to bring together two seemingly disparate communities that share an interest hacking systems, whether through code or in the city.

Currently, there are over 40,000 tags in the #000000book database.  For the F.A.T. GOLD exhibition currently on display at Eyebeam, artist Theo Watson redrew these tags back into physical space.  The cascading display showcases tags in chronological order, from the very first ones drawn by Tempt1, to the most recent captured by a variety of GML-powered apps.

Updated Description of Ninja Shadow Warrior

Posted on Tuesday, 18 January

Ninja Shadow Warrior will be a stand alone photo booth arcade game using the Kinect camera, computer and eventually a touch screen. As the ninja, the player must use ninja magic to hide, by “becoming” objects. The objects become progressively difficult to “become,” as each level is cleared. The highest score achieved during a game will be posted on ninjashadowwarrior.tumblr.com and there will also be a leader board incorporated into the game. 

The game promotes face-to-face cooperative interaction through strategy, as multiple ninjas can fill out object silhouettes more accurately.

This project is currently a work in progress in X-lab. If I am not working on it, it will be available for testing. Try it out and visit us at ninjashadowwarrior.tumblr.com!
