Jen LeBlanc does Digital Graffiti...

Nola Rising - Digital Graffiti - Conducted by Jen LeBlanc

Art student and Professional photographer Jen LeBlanc took to the campus of Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge to show one of her latest projects...Digital Graffiti. With the help of a projector, Jen set up a draw pad and a projector and let people go to town.

Projection art is one of the developing ways that artists are able to manipulate their environment for interactive exhibitions. Naturally, some of the folks for NoLA Rising had to go up and check this out.
