Public markup

Cable ties on a lamppost, Euston, London

This research looks at the marking of public space by investigating the physical annotation of the city: stickering, graffiti and billboards. It attempts to find patterns in this marking practice by looking at visibility, techniques, process, location, content and audience. It proposes ways in which this marking can be used as a layer between the physical city, and digital spatial annotation.

I have made a selection of research images over at Flickr, and more of the text and research will be online soon.
