History is a function of writing. Since the beginning of the historical consciousness of human beings, writing has been done on everything possible from animal bones to genomes. In the Korean language graffiti is translated as 낙서(落書, to doodle, scribble, write graffiti). 낙落(to fall; to drop) and 서書(book; codex); this word came from an involuntary “fall” of characters in a process of copying codices. This particular translation expands and deepens perceptions of what (and how) graffiti is. Etymologically, graffiti is to be discovered, not to be merely scribbled. It reveals itself deceptively on the surfaces of material life while it is written “up in the air”.
