We’ve seen a lot of hilarious images from Google Street View and have a good laugh at it. But New York based artist Paolo Cirio has turn it into stencil art – “Street Ghosts“. In the hippest areas for Street Art, life-sized pictures of people found on Google’s Street View were printed and posted 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.
“My artwork investigates the power of information, and thus human languages, the flow of communication and related media. I’m particularly interested in how specific arrangements of information influence the creation and perception of political, cultural and economic reality, as well as personal emotional states, interpersonal relationships and instinctive human behavior.”, Paolo said.
我们看过许多被 Google 街景车拍到的好笑照片并分享给亲朋好友让大家一起笑一下。不过纽约街头艺术家 Paolo Cirio 则是以此为启发创作出〝Street Ghosts（街头的鬼）〞系列拼贴。他利用 Google Map 在热门的街头创作区搜寻，将找到的人以等比例印刷出来然后依照图形上的角度与位置贴在建筑或是街上。非常棒的点子！
