    Post Graffiti

    Ok, my second poll will not be so philosophically deep.

    What do you think of graffiti? Take the building in my signature for example. Would it look better with graffiti scrawled all over it?

    No and nor would the GPO in Dublin or any building of architectural or historical merit. However, an older building or walls alongside a train track for instance, would look better with artisitic graffiti (a distinction must be made between ''Tony loves Sharon 4eva'' and a mural for instance)
    I can't vote since I think it depends on the building in question and the artistic talent involved.

    EDIT: Look at these Cosmo; http://www.forums.skadi.net/showthread.php?t=5289
    Are they art? Do they show the degeneracy in society or is their subject matter reflecting, for the most part, the degeneracy of human and colonial action? I know what I think.

    If the graffiti is on an old run down building, I think it stresses my point of a society in decline. And that is where most graffiti is found.

    I would consider those murals art, yes. But I also think that neighborhood would look better without them.

    Murals are an Ulster phenomenon. All we have here is hip-hop gangsta, anarchist or Arab youth graffiti, which aren't even legible.
    And all my youth passed by sad-hearted,
    the joy of Spring was never mine;
    Autumn blows through me dread of parting,
    and my heart dreams and longs to die.

    - Nikolaus Lenau (1802-1850)

    Real misanthropes are not found in solitude, but in the world; since it is experience of life, and not philosophy, which produces real hatred of mankind.

    - Giacomo Leopardi (1798-1837)

    Cosmo, you miss the point of those murals COMPLETELY if that's what you think.
    As for graffiti on run down buildings, one could take the approach that people painting on such buildings shows creativity rather than degeneration - it's the building in decline not the artist.

    I like decaying buildings without graffiti.

    I second that. For me, graffiti on buildings that are past their time looks pretty depressing. It's reminds me of a dull version of "out with the old"... bleh. And I'm just talking about the mural type of grafitti.

    I like it, it's a kind of urban folk art. I don't mean gang tags, but stuff like this:

    I like reading the funny stuff that people write in bathroom stalls! :-D And every once and awhile it's funny to call one of the phone numbers left on there -like "for a good time call Bobby 555-5555" hehehe

    Graffiti that looks good isn't so bad. It depends where it is too. If you don't like graffiti on a certain building, one way to make sure the city gets rid of it is to spray paint a giant swastika on it :-D They usually clean that up really fast. Though once someone put a giant blue one on a synagogue just a few blocks down from me, and it was there for quite awhile! It was a huge one too! They just couldn't get rid of it, and for the longest time there was a fading image of a blue swastika on this synagogue....funny in a way...
    I envision a world where people dawning long white robes and elaborate headdresses run rampant down the streets, waving their arms in the air while screaming "we've gone mad, we've gone mad", like defrocked monks breaking the silence of ages past.

    It depends on the quality and location of the grafitti.

    Post your definition of what degeneracy is.
    I doubt there are a lot of grafitti in Saudi Arabia.
