graff/it/i is about mapping and retracing the city’s process of graffiti removal. The project took the form of a web app. graff/it/i maps walking routes out of the city’s open data of graffiti removal locations. These walking routes are mapped out by the date of removal, giving the urban explorer/researcher a trace by which to evaluate the efficacy of graffiti removal as a quality of life issue. The project also involved visualizing the graffiti logged and removed from New York City streets.
