Traceless Graffiti: TOFA’s Light-Writing

Often, light-writing or light-graffiti is also described as traceless graffiti. There are several articles about that relative new art form, which combines the style and motion sequences from the traditional graffiti with the technical knowledge of photography, in my archives…

One of the protagonists of light-writing in Berlin is Chris Noelle aka TOFA, who is visual jockey (VJ) in real life, initiator of the “Light-Write Festival”, which took place in Berlin in 2009, and responsible for the creative design at the well-known Tresor club in Berlin.

His website, lightwriting.de, documents photographically his mixture of motion design, photography, light and urban art. If you are interested in TOFA’s work, I warmly recommend to take also a look at his portfolio!

Here are some of his light-writings from 2010:
