A new month, a new mural in Stucley Place. This piece was installed by French artist, Ador, with the help of his newfound collaborator and friend, Sémor. The work reminds me of an article and its accompanying illustration that I recently saw in the Wall Street Journal. The article, entitled When Instagram Culture Ruins a Vacation addresses the author Dan Crane’s view that our constant hunger for validation through social media is fundamentally altering the way we understand and interact with an experience. Drawing on what little I know of Street Art, Amor & Sémor’s piece looks to be hinting at a very similar idea – note selfie sticks and reference to Banksy’s work in background. Anyway , I’ll leave it to the design students and the professors to tell us exactly what it all means. Please tell me what you think in the comments section.
