Space Invader ‘World Invasion’ 10th Anniversary Book Release
In 1998 an invasion of the planet earth began, emerging in the form of small space invaders, painstakingly constructed from mosaic tiles and pasted to buildings across France. This urban virus was a new kind of invasion, inspired by the iconic 1970’s computer game of the same name and developed to its logical conclusion in the material world, a homage to viral proliferation in a digital age. Gradually spreading across Europe, America and throughout the world over a period of ten years, the vivid ‘Space Invaders’ can now be seen from the shores of Varanasi to the streets of Mombasa, from the slums of Los Angeles to the Hollywood sign itself; all the work of the Invader, a lone artist based in Paris. In a mere 10 years Invader has been everywhere, and World Invasion documents this first decade.
