'Video Painting Europe': Breathtaking Projection-Mapped Video Graffiti Transforms European Cities

Part interactive installation, part urban performance art, Video Painting Europe documents a kind of glow-in-the-dark graffiti that leaves no trace. Art collective Sweatshoppe uses ingenious infrared tracking to smear digital video over concrete surfaces with paint rollers. In this Vimeo Award-winning video, they travel to European cities like Paris, Belgrade, London, and more to paste their "video collages" on different architectural structures including the Berlin Wall. The duo behind the collective are Blake Shaw and Bruno Levy.
