i see freight yards getting locked down. they will be almost like passenger trains. thats what i see in the future. i see graffiti having another 'depression' like in the early 90's. graffiti will almost die out. the government powers will rejoice. then after 5 maybe 6 years graff will be big again. they will find some thing new to write on or vandalise? those little packets of ketchup maybe? every one sees them "yo man i went into the 6 yard to do some whole ketchup packets but it was a raid and i almost got caught"

 

your from australia and you say ketchup. how weird.

I think it will be a fully homogonized part of society... it will have a new name, something 'safe' like 'sprayin'... something that encourages participation in the system. It will be an intergral part of ALL advertising campaigns, including political elections. There will be 'sprayin' schools and it will be offered for credit at major colleges. A Seen handstyle will bring $40,000 at auction...

 

yeah but it will still be illegal and there would be a great divide between the safe sprayin folk and those creepin...(costal warring tribes like gansta rap?)

 

i see the future of graf on train obviously...but i also see the future on the highways via semitrucks and containers especially...the future of graf will be about transportation cause the buff is always close behind...

 

what would the world be like if graf was okaleedokalee? what would kids do instead?

I don't know what graffiti will look like then, but whatever it does in the next 20 years or even 200 years, it will at least survive. there aren't a lot of movements you can say that about. that's why I hate when people say GRAFF IS DEAD. writing is a creative movement, & so it will always find it's ways. if the cops learn anything, they should learn that; we will always be here in some form or other. that's why change & development is a good thing, & innovation is as important as anything oldschool.

just think of it as every time you evade the authorities in getting up, it's cretivity & higher complextiy surviving over repression.

speaking of which, right after 9/11 i found this pic in a newspaper of hundreds of airplanes just lined up in the mojave desert, since flights were down and they were just like parked for storage or whatever. i wanted to road trip to that spot and hit airplanes, it would rule

 

i'm sure the national guard was keeping an eye on them.

in 20 yrs bombing will be close to dead due to harsher penalties and surveilence, and spraypaint will be close to impossible to get.. but therll still be an underground scene in abandoned warehouses and such.. secret spots that noone knows about except the writers, and theyll be killing shit there.. stylewise i see someone coming out with a completely original style and just fucking making everyone else shit their pants, and peicing will go in new directions because of him. of course, maybe im just being optimistic :o

In 20 years..lets see...there will be cameras everywhere. racking will be almost extinct...graff may go to space, spray paint will be bought with a license. the first holographic illegal piece will be done. we might have barcodes and chips in us for global tracking...fr8s will be almost all double stacks..if vehicular levitaion is invented..the rail will be dug up for more space. we might even be extenct due to masspopulations/ polution/nuclear war/outer space projectiles. anythings possible,..it's more of a guess or a strain to think what will happen. If cave men never figured out how to write on walls, where would we be now?

Actually in 20 years if space travel is the fastest then the airplane would become the new short fly fast way of transportation, like how the airplane replaced the train. Spacetravel would replace airplanes which would make airplanes easy to hit, because it would be the new subway.

to be honest I dont think there will be any drastic differences. Better security (cheaper cameras and whatnot), harsher penalties, cops who know a little more about whats going on. But all that considered, walls will be painted, windows will be etched, scratched, and otherwise engraved, trains (freight and passenger) will still be painted, and hopefully there will be a decent sized shipping container scene (worldwide play!). Graff will always be here...you think anybody who wrote back in 89 in nyc as the trains died had bright hopes for the future? probably not...but its bigger than ever now.

unfortunately in twenty years the outcome will not be good. graffiti however, will not be dead. a good point was brought up by ese, when the subways were terminated (to a point) nyc thought it was the end. over a decade later graff is still here as it will always be.

 

i see graff in twenty years as being ridiculously harder to do than nowadays. even within the last 5-6 years i can see that in my area it has become a lot harder to bomb. the task force in the future will be even more out of hand than it already is...search warrents will be given out with even more leniency than even now, and camera's will be on every street corner taping our every move from when we set foot outside of our houses. ok....that might not happen within 20 years but some changes for the worse will occur.
