Using the Tagtool, an instrument for drawing and animating with light in real time, artists create ephemeral graffitti out of projected light.


Shared Space and Light’s Tower of Dreams, Brighton, 2011.

Animated projections are used to activate a popular local building, which is falling into disrepair. Developed with the local community, the projections include ideas for how the building could be used in the future.
