After they wrote a message of solidarity with Borf, we let loose with a few hundred of the little gizmos. A crowd gathered and was really into it. A group of 7-or-8 year old kids started picking the throwies off the cube and throwing them back again. At one point a belligerent touristy guy demanded to know what the point of this spectacle was and his wife yelled, “Oh Harold! Shut up and throw the thing already!”
Making throwies is easy and fun. You can find step-by-step instructions at Instructables. Check out GRL’s video here and Visual Resistance’s photos on flickr.
Many thanks to GRL for the invite and for letting us explore all their high-tech graffiti inventions. Expect nothing but great things from them in the future!
