Vicki will video the process of creating her light painting and light graffiti work. You can view her most current light painting projects on her Youtube channel here.
This Light Painting video is a five year compilation video of photography shoots featuring the corresponding still photographs from 2007-2012 featuring Vicki DaSilva’s signature light graffiti and light painting styles.
Light graffiti photograph live and on location. Jasmine/Never Sorry (for Ai Weiwei) references several events and topics starting with the well-known artist and the documentary film being made by Alison Klayman titled Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry, the first feature-length film about the internationally renowned Chinese artist and activist. As graffiti has at its core an authority defiant driven motivation, my idea was to cover the two walls with the words ‘never sorry’ using a pale yellow lamp to reference the color of the Jasmine flower and the Jasmine Revolution of 2011. Ai Weiwei posted a tweet on Twitter February 24, 2011 saying: “I didn’t care about jasmine at first, but people who are scared by jasmine sent out information about how harmful jasmine is… which makes me realize that jasmine is what scares them the most.” While making this work in the dark I thought very intensely about his detention, interrogation and suspected abuse and torture.

Occupy Wall Street light graffiti October 2, 2011
Bike gang rode up on me last night and it was a beautiful intervention upon intervention!
Last night we went to Retna’s opening at Primary Projects Space in Miami. BANGIN show and a nice guy too. I mentioned the need for manufacturers to develop a clean spray paint that is as good as the dirty stuff and we chatted for a sec about that need. I told him I was going over to make a piece on his wall at the Margulies Warehouse, but I didn’t say what exactly. I’ve been thinking a lot about Bill Gates’ TED talk and his ONE WISH for innovative energy miracles for ZERO CO2 emission.
