The Writing's on the Wall: Graffiti Archaeology

Graffiti is one of the four elements of hip-hop. Ya heard? That's why I'm slapping this onto Heard Mentality. Graffiti Archaeology is an engrossing site that will eat up a good chunk of your day if you're not careful. Read the mission statement below.

Graffiti Archaeology is a project devoted to the study of graffiti-covered walls as they change over time. The core of the project is a timelapse collage, made of photos of graffiti taken at the same location by many different photographers over a span of several years. The photos were taken in San Francisco, New York, Los Angeles and other cities, over a timespan from the late 1990's to the present.
