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.
