Graffiti Art Meets Spatial Computing: The Emergence of Spatial Creators

In the burgeoning field of spatial computing, traditional forms of content creation are being revolutionized, giving rise to a new breed of innovators known as Spatial Creators. One striking example of this evolution is the transformative impact on graffiti art.

Shepard and the Personalized Graffiti Experience

Consider Shepard, a renowned graffiti artist. In the realm of spatial computing, Shepard can digitally modify any physical object, be it a fountain in a park or an entire building, without actually applying paint to a surface. The artistic modification exists purely in the digital sphere and can be projected into the physical world through your intelligent assistant.

The Role of Intelligent Assistants

Here’s how it works: As you stroll through an urban area, your intelligent assistant, aware of your admiration for Shepard’s work, notifies you that the artist has digitally “painted” a nearby building. With your permission, the assistant activates the augmented experience, and suddenly the building in front of you is transformed, featuring Shepard’s unique artistic vision.

The New Canvas for Spatial Creators

This technology opens up a world of possibilities for Spatial Creators. No longer limited by physical constraints or legal permissions, artists like Shepard can express their creativity on a grand scale, altering public spaces to provide a personalized experience for each viewer.

Beyond the Aesthetic: Societal Implications

Such applications of spatial computing go beyond mere visual pleasure. They can make public spaces more engaging, foster community interaction, and even serve educational purposes by overlaying historical or cultural information onto physical landmarks.


Spatial computing is blurring the lines between the physical and digital worlds, reshaping the way we interact with our environment. For graffiti artists and other Spatial Creators, this means unprecedented freedom to alter public spaces in a way that can be individually tailored and easily shared, redefining the very canvas on which they create.
