VEKTORKOLLEKTOR is a mobile vector drawing machine. It consists of an old pen plotter (big thanks to XHAIN for the donation), which is operated by an arcade joystick. The drawn images are digitally archived and published on this website. You can browse the data set by swiping or with the arrow keys.
VEKTORKOLLEKTOR was made 2021 by Niklas Roy and Kati Hyyppä in Chemnitz at Dialogfelder ZWEI, a residency project of Klub Solitaer.

The  vector data set (RAW/OPTIMIZED/PDF) is in the public domain (CC0). Feel free to do whatever you like with it! You can also directly load the vector drawings into Inkscape, thanks to this super cool Plugin written by Mario Voigt.
We have used the vector drawings so far to plot big graffitis:
