EyeWriter | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Members of Free Art and Technology (FAT), OpenFrameworks, the Graffiti Research Lab, and The Ebeling Group communities have teamed-up with a legendary LA graffiti writer, publisher and activist, named Tony Quan, aka TEMPTONE. Tony was diagnosed with ALS in 2003, a disease which has left him almost completely physically paralyzed… except for his eyes. This international team is working together to create a low-cost, open source eye-tracking system that will allow ALS patients to draw using just their eyes. The long-term goal is to create a professional/social network of software developers, hardware hackers, urban projection artists and ALS patients from around the world who are using local materials and open source research to creatively connect and make eye art.

The layers of legal graffiti that had built up over the years were painted in preparation for the planned demolition, which is paving the way for luxury condominiums. While there had been a couple stays of execution, it was an inevitable end to a building beloved by people from around the city and indeed the world. Art Director at mcgarrybowen, Eric Lau attended the last break-dancing battle outside the building and captured it in his poignant black and white photographs.
