Have you noticed the invasion??

space invaders

The space invaders have been around for yeeeeaaaars and I have never noticed them until a friend told me about them.

The invasion started in Paris and had spread all over the world: London,Rome, Berlin, Istanbul, Barcelona, Sao Paulo, LA, New York, Tokyo, Melbourne, Mombasa…

I have become obsessed with them..the same way I got obsessed with the tags Regarde le Ciel (“Look at the sky”) or Amour (“Love”) when I was in college.

Discovering a new one is like finding in new piece of a puzzle..although, I have never really liked puzzles, so I’d say … a piece of a mysterious artistic treasure 😉

Pay attention and you will see that they are everywhere. From quite touristy places like la Place du Tertre near Le Sacré-Coeur to more hidden locations..I found out that they are even…on the Hollywood sign!!

Have you seen one them?? Where?? Has your city been invaded too?

  1. Cool!! I was hung up about space invaders in Rome too. I started to have the obsession with them when I saw the book art of artist in friend of mine’s house ( he loves contemporary art) and the artist wrote the map where he arranged invaders mosaics in the world ( actually I loved that game) I was excited so I proposed him one night to do “Invaders hunt” like treasure hunt…so we took Chisel and hammer and went Around all night searching invaders( I know, it sounds Wild and illegal but exciting) One was behind his place close Navona square but it was arduous to get off, I think it is still there. Anyway he has in his living room two of the space invaders mosaics. We could do it in Australia.. 🙂 I love your blog frenchy girl!!! It is perfect to improve my English..I lose hours reading it. Bisous et A plus tard.

    • ;-))) I WOULD love to do a space invaders hunt! I would NOT steal them though;-)
      Everyone should get a chance to see them and do their own hunt. But we could… take silly pics in front of each of them, or dress them with some cool/silly outfit… I know there are a bunch in Melbourne but I only got to see one. And, the only reason I saw it is because our common French friend showed it to me!
      Same in Paris, I was obsessed with them but my friends always had to point them out to me. I just don’t see things.
