Graffiti artists now have another space to play. Self-professed copyright violator and vandal Evan Roth--who also happens to be an artist and co-founder of F.A.T., a Brooklyn-based R&D lab for the public domain, and artist/developer Chris Sugrue created this app that allows graffiti artists to create and database multidimensional tags.

The app is part of an ongoing study in the motion of graffiti. "What Martha Cooper did for archiving graffiti on film, and Chalfant/Silver did for archiving graffiti in video, Graffiti Analysis intends to do for archiving graffiti in code," the site explains. Graffiti artists use the app to create four-dimensional tags that can be saved as GML (graffiti markup language) files and archived at 000000book.com. The project is open source and invites others to use the archived data to create new applications and visualizations.
