Street Ghost Project
In international areas for Street Art, life-sized pictures of people found on Google’s Street View are printed and posted without authorization at the same spot where they were taken.
The posters are printed in color on thin paper, cut along the outline, and then affixed with wheatpaste on the walls of public buildings at the precise spot on the wall where they appear in Google’s Street View image.
Street Ghosts has been a rigorous hunt for the most visible people on spooky buildings with walls available for art interventions.
The physical evidence of the ghosts’ appearance may vanish quickly, but its documentation will remain forever.
Author of the idea, actions and
theoretical text: Paolo Cirio.
Assistants for research, editing and pre-production: Adalky Capellan, Max Fox, John Bussiere, Chris Stach.
Special thanks to Eyebeam Art and Technology Center for having made this project possible.
