A picture story of Jürg Lehni's portable graffiti machine


Jürg Lehni and Uli Franke’s Hektor is a portable graffiti printer consisting of two motors, a spraycan holder, toothed belts, cables, a strong battery and a circuit board connected to a laptop which controls the machine. Via changes in the length of these belts, Hektor's spray-can can follow vector graphic paths and spray them onto walls.
