Jeremy Wong,
Digital Graffiti Wall

The Walker presents Digital Graffiti Wall, designed and hosted by Tangible Interactions – a digital interaction studio based in Vancouver, Canada. Tangible Interaction’s Digital Graffiti Wall is built to look and feel just like real street art. Anyone can grab one of the digital spray cans and take a turn creating their own work on the digital wall. Select your own custom backdrop, with images taken by photographers of both the American Indian Cultural Corridor and the Rondo Neighborhood, bringing a piece of each zone to downtown Minneapolis.

Jeremy Wong is the lead artist for Digital Graffiti Wall and works with Tangible Interactions. Tangible Interactions began in 2006 in Vancouver, British Columbia, led by artist Alex Beim. Today, our multidisciplinary team has expertise in graphic design, industrial design and sound design, as well as electronics engineering and software development.

Boozhoo! (Hello) My name is Courtney Arlene Cochran, I am a Indigenous artist from Nett Lake Band of Chippewa. I currently attend Minneapolis College of Art and design. I enjoy working with many mediums such as film, photography, drawing and Native American Art. I primarily work with seed beads, birch bark and porcupine quills to create one of a kind authentic Native American art. I decided to name the title “NOOKOMIS” meaning ‘Grandmother’ in the Ojibwe Language in honor of my late grandmother, Arlene Cochran. Arlene who raised me, was a very important influence with my artwork. Although she was not artistically talented and would say “I cannot draw a stick figure to save my life!” her life and strength was a true inspiration to me and I would not be the woman, artist and mother I am today If it was not for her selfless decision to raise me.
