MobiSpray at Art Basel 2009

Wednesday, June 17th, 2009

MobiSpray was this year shown at Art Basel - but not in the traditional way as all the other artworks were, no, I hi-jacked the event and put it up in guerilla manner, in the MobiLenin style. Check out some of my trophies below. I’ll put up a video a bit later. I found the Art Basel this year highly inspiring and really worth visiting. I met many interesting people and had good talks.

Spraying outdoors on the huge frontside of the Art Basel Exhibition main hall. Yes, it was done by me.


Every evening I painted the citiy of Basel in some location that I was tempted to change into the looks as I want it. Here, I painted at the Marktplatz.

MobiSpray - How does it work?

Wednesday, September 17th, 2008

Ever want to repaint your neighbor’s house? Or pet polar bear? MobiSpray allows light-based painting by using a mobile phone as spray can. With only a phone and a surface you can paint anywhere, anytime on anything. The spray-painting follows your hand gestures in real-time, while spraying intensity and color change via keypad. Whether you are in the woods or the city MobiSpary lets you paint BIG. And, the freedom to intentionally change your surroundings at the scale of your choosing opens doors of creativity and imagination. Turn your reality into something new, unexpected, surprising and unpredictable.
