Paris space Invaders
I've been willing to show you this strange phenomenon for a while but I never managed to get a good photo of it. It? The little Space Invaders (you know this game that was so popular in the 80s...) that are to be found in many places in Paris (and now, not only Paris actually...). They originate from a guy we know very little about, who decided one day to "invade" the city with these little men... They are made of tiles and strongly glued to the walls (it's impossible to remove them without breaking them). Like he says "Some people call me a polluter, others say I'm an artist. I prefer to think of myself as an invader". His site appears to be a little dormant, but you still can have a better idea of what he does. BTW, I took this photo in Montmartre opposite to the Moulin de la Galette, the other day.
