Invader Actually Invades Space With His Art

After “invading” cities the world over with his 8-bit video game-inspired mosaic installations Parisian artist Invader has taken his art to the final frontier with his Art4Space project.

In August Invader launched a a weather balloon equipped with a camera into the atmosphere. Also attached to the balloon was a mosaic piece called “Space One” that ascended through the terrestrial atmospheric layers until finally reaching space for a short time. The camera photographed the mosaic’s space odyssey and will serve as the inspiration for Invader’s Art4Space exhibition at the Pulse-Miami art fair during Art Basel Miami in December.
