Paolo Cirio: Street Ghosts

Artist Paolo Cirio has created street artwork inspired by the bodies of people captured by Google’s Street View cameras. 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. Speaking about the project Paolo says, "In this case, the artwork becomes a performance, re-contextualizing not only data, but also a conflict. It’s a performance on the battlefield, playing out a war between public and private interests for winning control on our intimacy and habits, which can change permanently depending on the victor."
