Graffyard is a fascinating project by Berlin-based artist Sweza, who focuses on illustrations and modifications in public space.

  • I am using QR Codes to preserve graffiti for posterity by photographing the graffiti before it is removed. After the graffiti has been cleaned off by the local authorities or building owner I place a QR Code in the exact location which resolves to an image of the original. In that way a mobile phone with a QR-Code Reader can be used to travel back in time.

I really like how the intervention bridges digital and physical realms in an interactive way. There is lots of potential to take this concept further, like physically manifesting virtual Easter eggs as part of scavenger hunts or contests.
