Day 3 of GML Week brings us the first major update to a project that I started working on back in 2004 as part of my graduate thesis research. I have teamed up with artist and OpenFrameworks bada55 Chris Sugrue to create Graffiti Analysis 2.0. The GA2.0 software suite consists of (i) the Capture application (PC/OSX/Linux), which records graffiti tags in motion and exports them as .gml files; (ii) the Playback application (PC/OSX/Linux), which imports .gml files and creates data visualizations based on gestural graffiti movement and (iii) DustTag (the GA2.0 iPhone application), which captures graffiti tags and uploads them directly to 000000book.com, an open online database of .gml data. GA2.0 is an ongoing initiative that has been used to capture data from prominent graffiti writers including SEEN, TWIST, AMAZE, KETONE, JON ONE and KATSU, all of which can be downloaded for playback at graffitianalysis.com/tags.
GA2.0 is available online for free in an effort to build the world’s largest archive of graffiti motion data and encourage collaboration between graffiti writers (by uploading data) and hackers (by building systems which utilize that data).
Welcome to GML week @fffffat! Graffiti Markup Language (GML) is a new XML file type specifically designed for archiving graffiti tags. Gestural graffiti motion data of a tag created in GML-supported software is saved as a text file with a “.GML” extension…. a new digital standard for tomorrow’s vandals.
Please stay tuned to FAT all this week as we publish new GML related projects each day. There will be multiple new free software releases, open data repositories, iphone apps, robots, guest bloggers and more. GML week is now officially open for business.
Commented example GML code can be viewed here.

Why is it that so many arts organizations claiming to “support the arts” never seem to have any “support” for the artists? Don Draper offers us some advice on how to negotiate with arts organizations.
I’ll mail out a free book and stickers to anyone that BCC’s me (evan[at]fffff.at) on a negotiation email with an arts organization in which you use the phrase, “this is my profession, what do you want me to do?” Extra gold star if you use the phrase “I think you wouldn’t be in the presidential suite right now if you worked for free.”* (Feel free to use the images below as attachments.) Don Draper’em!
* Must be actual artist fee negotiation email with real arts organization. All information will be kept confidential.
