Walled City Stories
Creating the Palestinian Wall with Processing
We were inspired by the evocativeness of graffiti and the messages they hold, but also how fleeting the self-regulated canvas can be – some pieces covered the next day, others years later. To try to archive the history of art, we created a virtual wall with an immersive way to explore the pieces using a camera controlled by the user’s mouse and embedded information about the art that pops up as the user is seeing the pieces from different years. We used Processing to play in a 3D environment and also have 2D slides that make it easier to breakdown the images and absorb textual information.
