Said Dokins y Mauricio Rodriguez Finalistas en Digital Graffiti Festival at Alys Beach 2009

Said Dokins y Mauricio Rodriguez colaboran actualmete en un proyecto sobre graffiti de luz y multimedia. El prmer proyecto llamado METAMORFOSIS.

Este proyecto es una reflexión sobre la “hibridismo”, traducida en los cambios y las mezclas que puede tener una elemento gráfico como lo es el graffiti, es este caso se utiliza la energía lumínica como elemento de cambio. A partir de fotografías de graffiti de luz un sistema de programación, se genera un vídeo interactivo que consta de varios planos aleatorios y cambiantes a partir de valores numéricos, tags de graffiti posicionados en diversos lugares y planos en el espacio y que son sensibles a las variaciones de sonido, de este modo la luz se contrae o se expande dependiendo de los sonido altos y bajos, así mismo tenemos letras de graffiti de luz que se transforman a partir de valores numéricos y que funcionan como partículas ligeras que se mueven en el espacio dirigidas por el mouse o el teclado. De esta manera tenemos un graffiti abstracto de luz, funciona a partir de sentencias de las personas presentes, el vídeo muestra una de las diversas posibilidades visuales que tiene esta metodología de hibridismo y mezcla.

This project is a reflection on the "hybridism", translated into the changes and mixtures may have a graphic element such as graffiti, in this case the light energy is used as an element of change. From photographs of graffiti light a programming system, an interactive video that consists of several random drawings and changing from numerical values, graffiti tags are positioned in different places and planes in space and are sensitive to variations of sound, thus the light shrinks or expands depending on the sound high and low, and we have light graffiti letters that are transformed from numerical values and to function as light particles that move in space directed by the mouse or keyboard. In this way we light a graffiti abstract works from judgments of the persons present, the video shows a variety of visual possibilities of this methodology is that “hybridism” and mixing.
