This cool graffiti archaeology site is a very clever use of a Flash interface.
It shows the progression of graffiti on various buildings and locations in San Francisco. You can view the same locations/structures and go back or forward to pictures taken at different times, from back in 1998 until the present, and see the various layers of tags and artwork that have come and gone over the years. The photos are resized and perspective corrected so that they overlap the same areas and give a more seamless presentation. Neat, and it makes graffiti more interesting than I thought it could be. I’d like to see the same presentation applied to other topics too.
Lascaux, by the way, is a cave in France famous for the incredibly detailed cave paintings of animals and symbols. Very early graffiti. 🙂
I came across this site via this photo on flickr, which shows one of the railway tunnels featured on the site.
