graffiti out of the time stream

This graffiti exists on an out-of-the-way wall in Washington, DC.  It projects a sense of surveillance.  Graffiti is illegal.  Cameras hidden everywhere and cameras that all unnoticefully deploy make continual surveillance a reality.  A young man recent spent nearly two years in jail in Virginia for making graffiti.

Graffiti was once an insistence on space for anyone to write for everyone.  The Internet now provides unlimited, unnoticed public space.  Graffiti on an out-of-the-way wall is as strange today as a print newspaper.
