Graffiti

The erasure (by painted tarpaulin) of 5pointz, a popular canvas for graffiti artists in NY, makes me wonder not just whether graffiti is art; but whether art indeed exists, and whether photography is itself graffiti (of the socio-cultural soul).  The last photograph on the slide has an interesting comment about the life cycle of buildings.  Is it now an open corpse oozing its decomposing relics?
