“Life-sized pictures of people found on Google’s Street View were printed and posted without authorization 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. The physical evidence of the ghosts’ appearance may vanish quickly, but its documentation will remain forever. Street Ghosts reveals the aesthetic, biopolitical, tactical and legal issues, which can be explored through the artist’s statement and theoretical considerations.”

Selected pictures of installations at the following cities:

Manhattan NYC, Brooklyn NYC, Denver, Buffalo, Montreal, London, Berlin, Stuttgart, Brussels, Lyon, Marseille, Bilbao, Barcellona, Sydney.
