Reverse Graffiti

from the lovely and debonaire boingboing.net:


An artist in Leeds has been writing messages and drawing images on public walls, without the least bit of property damage. He is strategically cleaning away caked-on grime into the shapes of letters. His letters stand out almost as well as spray-paint, and yet, if anything, he has made the owners job slightly easier should they ever choose to clean it. Apparently he only uses water and a stiff brush.

It's writing in dusty windshields times a thousand.

Have we as a society reached a point of activity saturation that is so intense that we can only communicate by tearing away old layers of residue? Do we now make so much noise that silence is more noticeable than a loud declaration? Welcome to the mirror years, I will be your guide.
