The app sees fans from around the world hunting for Invader mosaics and gaining points depending on which pieces they find. Each mosaic has an individual score allocated to it and photos or ‘Flashes’ are authenticated via your phones GPS. We nipped out to London last weekend to test the app. We managed 13 pieces, which saw us climb to a meagre 182nd place on the leaderboard.
As we mentioned last week – Space Invader has been hitting Tokyo hard with a load of fresh new pieces going up in the Japanese capital. There are some really great pieces cropping up, including original Invaders and tiled versions of Japanese cult icons like Astroboy, Doraemon, Hello Kitty and Grendizer. It’s also been reported by Invader himself that a mini Mona Lisa piece has already disappeared, we’re hoping that’s not a sign of things to come.
If you follow Invaderwashere you would’ve seen the re-invasion of Tokyo taking place this week. There are some really great pieces going up, including a glow-in-the-dark Invader and tiled versions of Japanese cult icons Astroboy and Grendizer.
We’re only posting the one photo from Invaderwashere, so make sure you visit the Instagram account for all the photos. We’ll have more soon.
Invader will participate in group exhibition PULP at The Outsiders gallery, Newcastle at the end of this month.
