Reportažas iš grafičių dirbtuvių, kurių metu dalyviai tyrinėjo naująją Laser Tag grafičių techniką: šie piešiniai ir tagai negadina fasadų, tačiau gali . Tikslas: išmokti naudoti šią techniką kaip komunikacinį įrankį, atsižvelgiant į istorinį ir kultūrinį pasirinktų objektų kontekstus. Dirbtuvių organizatorius: LitPro (EHU). Vedėjai: Jekaterina Lavrinec (Laimikis.lt) ir Veronika Urbonaitė-Barkowska.

LitPro workshop “Exploring the Graffiti” took place on 7-11 May 2012, Vilnius. Initiator: Pavel Kirpikau.
Participants: Pavel Kirpikau, Andrei Karpeka, Olga Luchenok, Alina Krushynskaya, Andrei Garan.
Tutors: Jekaterina Lavrinec (Laimikis.lt) & Veronika Urbonaitė-Barkowska

Aim: to explore a new Laser graffiti technology and to arrange a series of interventions in the city.
Target: abandoned places and silent monuments, which get the opportunity to “speak” due to laser graffiti.
Challenge: to create site sensitive messages, which would reflect current status of chosen objects and historical contexts.
Place: quite a big area on the frontier of the Old Town of Vilnius.
Photos by: Andrei Karpeka & Andrei Garan.

Site: Lithuania cinema, Vilnius.
Context: Privatized and closed in 2002. It’s a nostalgic place for several generations of Vilnius citizens and the very first city object, which has brought citizens together for series of protests in 2005.
Status: now it’s a target for many graffitists. One of the graffiti messages (already demolished) was “Lithuania for all” (“Lietuva visiems”).
Message: recreated graffiti “Lithuania for all?” (Lietuva visiems?)

Place: Lithuania cinema, Vilnius.
Context: Privatized and closed in 2002.
Message: Watch Youtube

Place: Lithuania cinema, Vilnius.
Message: Cinema (“Kino” is also a name of legendary Russian music band, active back in 80’s; the fans of the band have been writing the name of it on the walls in every post-Soviet city in 90’s and in the beginning of the 21st century).

Place: Lithuania cinema, Vilnius.
Message: Watch!

Place: Reformatų sq., Vilnius.
Context: Calvinist cemetery in 17-19 cen. A park and square + monument for “Soviet partisans and (sic) the underground” in 1983-1990. Abandoned after the monument was dismantled.

Status: a quiet, shady and mysterious place with the “aztec pyramids”
(which remained after the monument was dismantled), intensive nightlife.
Message: just “Stairs”.

Place: Reformatų sq., Vilnius.
Context: Abandoned “aztec pyramics” – which left after the monument was dismantled.
Message: “aztec pyramids” & “aztec signs”.

Place: Cvirka monument, Vilnus.
Context: Cvirka was a Lithuanian novelist. The monument became the
object of controversy after the restoration of independence in 1990.

Status: silent ghost.
Message: “Tylos” means “Keep silence” in Lithuanian.

The second part of the workshop was an open event of laser graffiti session at “Soulbox”. Every citizen could join and try to leave a LASER tag or a drawing on the walls around the bar.

In a couple of days after the workshop a documentation of the project was placed by the sites, where the interventions took place (thank you, Adrei Karpeka for arranging and documenting it!). Exposing a documentation of night interventions to citizens, who attend these in a daytime, we extend the time of the intervention. And from the perspective of urban activist, it’s a possibility to keep dialogue with passers-by and get a feedback, which is one of the essential part of any action in the city.

    Praeivi, LitPro periodiškai organizuoja miesto dirbtuves,

    Tiesa, šį kartą jos skirtos ne graffiti, bet užtat mano grupėje bus daromos intervencijos į viešąsias erdves.
