Space Invader's Paris
On our first day in Paris we noticed a work from Space Invader across the street. Little did we know that by the weeks end we had made it a game of competition who would discover the next one. Day after day the quantity of the Invader's grew. Some day's Nina found them all while other day's I contributed a couple.
Like many others that enjoy Invader's work, there's something fun to discovering how a grid of tiles can be so expressive. Add the element of surprise and it becomes much more than just a quick visual moment.
It has always been enjoyable seeing the occasional piece pop from a wall. Being in the hometown of Invader added another layer of memories during our time in Paris.
