Digital Sprayers

What: A mobile app that turns your phone into a virtual can of spray paint. Express your political opinions with your own augmented-reality graffiti!

Why: Voter participation among young people is at an all-time low. What better way to invite more engagement than by using the smartphone to modernise a classic form of self-expression: graffiti.

How: With ‘Digital Sprayers’, people can paint virtual comments on city walls and respond to other users’ tags. The public space becomes a communication platform for a new, responsive community encouraging self-expression.
