G.R.L. [FR] ~ 2011-2018

The Graffiti Research Lab France (G.R.L. [FR]) was an art group dedicated to outfitting graffiti writers, artists and protesters with open source technologies for urban communication. The G.R.L. F.R. team carried research in the fields of electronics, digital art, D.I.Y and urban hacking from April 2011 to November 2018.

This website now contains the GRL FR's archives for this period.

Minitel and hacking activities, initiated by the GRL FR members are still going.

They have been transfered to

DeMO / The DEad Minitel Orchestra
and
IoDT / The Internet of Dead Things Institute
