Fake Real – Real Fake
I take it as a compliment like in chinese culture when I find reproductions of my work on the net. This Google Map marker is a nice and very subtle variation of my “Map” installation. And Paul The Wine Guy has a whole series of web/computer symbols in public space in his flickr set. Some well known graffiti artists are cited there, too. But the irony of the collection showed up while I was taking a closer look at the “photographs”. Most of them (or even all) turn out to be photoshoped. In case of the map marker is some 3D involved. Well done, good job, hehe.
The digital to real translation has become so much mainstream that it doesn’t need to be accomplished in physical space any more. Maybe time has come for me to change the plan and to go back into architecture again. 😉
