Social Graffiti is a Digital Media Program senior project from Drexel University's Westphal College of Media Arts & Design that links together architecture, design, and technology.

Digitally “tag” Nesbitt Hall at Drexel University using your Twitter account. Simply send your tweets @digmgraffiti. This tag will be incorporated into animations that project onto Nesbitt Hall’s front surface at 33rd and Market Streets.

UPDATE: Social Graffiti's seven-story projection has now come to a end. The smaller projections on the windows will remain, but your tweets will no longer be projected onto the big wall. We would like to thank everyone around the world for sending in your tweets and making this project a success. If you would like to see Social Graffiti return to Drexel, please contact Drexel University and make your opinion known. If you are interested in bringing Social Graffiti to your area, please contact us via the form at the bottom of the page.
