A subculture of graffiti artists is emerging, armed with only a performance camera and a Maglite. At night, they take to the dark corners of the parks and streets; however, unlike their aerosol-wielding counterparts, defacing property is not the name of the game. Instead, the art paradoxically requires one thing to harness the light: darkness. In addition, this unconventional method has another advantage over the lose-too-many-braincells-from-paint fumes ways of the past:  the canvas is darkness, and light is the tool allowing them to “paint” in three dimensions!
