After emailing to ask if anyone would like to collaborate with me by sending photos of their local text based graffiti, the first photograph I was sent was this one. I got it on January 11th 2015.
The subject heading was “Absurd graffiti” and the email said
“This is the most absurd graffiti i found in my neighbourhood. It is the name of the tax deduct of the Oslo region…Skatt Øst = Tax East
I made the photo black and white to make it easier to draw from. I made a pencil drawing and gave it to her on March 29th. I am looking forward to seeing where it is now and a photograph of this intervention.
