Is digital graffiti the new tool for the generation of digital natives to resist, protest, and engage? With examples we see that going digital allows a “displacement and assemblage of space,” 12 and leads to a re-organiz- ing of the aesthetics of architecture with all its symbols and power structures. Digital graffiti is a powerful tool for protest and intervention. And the practical advan- tages of digital graffiti over traditional graffiti are obvi- ous. One does not have to get close to the architecture onto which one intends to project. Even fenced-in build- ings can be turned into a projection screen. One may even choose the building in relation to the message of the graffiti. Also, digital graffiti does not cause damage to property and is therefore not a criminal act.
