Rogues Gallery

Rogue's Gallery transforms public space into critical sites for free speech and public discourse, while simultaneously transforming ordinary citizens into petty criminals. Under the guise of "performance art", I.A.A. operatives make GraffitiWriter available to members of the general public, who use the robot to spraypaint personal messages.

I.A.A. agents act only as facilitators - both the message content and the actual operation of GraffitiWriter is left in the hands of "civilians." Rogues Gallery has been executed 5 cities internationally. Below is an interactive gallery of a few of the civilian participants. These newly consumated criminals come from all manner of backgrounds, from GirlScouts to City Police.
