Invader chasing in the streets of Paris!
We know, we know … it’s not really latest news!
Nevertheless, it is always fun to stroll through Paris and hunt for some space invaders. The “Flash Invaders” app was released in 2014 and is updated regularly. With the app you can spot and “flash” the famous street mosaics of Invader and collect it in a gallery on your smartphone. With each new Space Invader added, the player is awarded between 10 and 100 points depending on the size, the materials used or where the mosaic is located. You can then compare and compete with other players.
To realize the application, Invader (the artist’s nickname who wants to remain anonymous) had to collect and update his creation steadily until today. All his pieces are unique, named, dated, photographed and grouped in a database. The artist has made nearly 3,000 mosaics on walls over 80 cities. Paris, however, marked its beginnings and remains its main field of experimentation.
We opened the hunt in the 11th arrondissement at Boulevard Beaumarchais and walked in direction of the canal Saint Martin. Seems to be one of Invader’s favorite neighborhoods and a nice spot for a stroll!
