This weekend the Science Gallery at Trinity College, Dublin will play host to renowned art researcher, Evan Roth. The Propulsion Paintings Workshop will look at spray paint from a new perspective, exploring its potential uses as a propulsion device. Graffiti writers have long ‘hacked’ spray paint cans, altering their original purpose to leave their mark in public spaces and on public transport, creating art around the city.

In this two-day workshop with Hack The City, artist Evan Roth who founded the Graffiti Research Lab, you will hack spray paint in your own way. You will conceive, build, deploy and document new Propulsion Paintings – your own series of sculptures and video documentation based on modified cans of spray paint. You will be provided with a can of spray paint (along with some basic hardware) and will create kinetic sculptures designed to exist within the city.

Evan Roth is an artist and researcher based in Paris; some of his notable projects include L.A.S.E.R. Tag and LED Throwies (Graffiti Research Lab). Roth’s work is in the permanent collection of MoMA (NYC) and has been exhibited widely in the Americas, Europe and Asia and the front page of YouTube. Roth is co-founder of the Graffiti Research Lab and the Free Art & Technology Lab, a web based, open source research and development lab.

The workshops will take place on Saturday, June 16th from noon and Sunday, June 17, from 6.
