Step away from the brick wall!
If you are a graffiti artist in Melbourne, you may be hearing this next time you set about on your next work of art -“We are watching you, recording your actions and the evidence could be used in any legal action.” Apparently the Hume coucil and also Connex are sick of vandalism, and are thinking of taking other measures to stop it. As graffiti costs up to 100 million dollars a year to clean up, I don’t blame them!
A camera will sense movement and sound and emit a warning. It has been very popular in Europe and the States, they cost 6 thousand each and are cased in bullet proof plastic.
I think there are a lot of things that could go wrong with these cameras, but certain areas (Fitzroy being one of them) are just covered in crappy tags and I think something needs to be done to ensure our city doesn’t look like a kids colouring book. I really dig good graffiti – that is art, but tagging is just stupid. – Comments ppl?
