It might be hard for some of us to remember life before social media. Before Facebook walls. Before Twitter-spheres. But Italian artist Biancoshock is reminding us that these very modern methods of communication have actually always existed.
As part of the CVTà Street Fest, in the tiny Italian village of Civitacampomarano – where 4G remains the stuff of legend – Biancoshock has created real-life ‘internet’.
Locals chat casually on a Twitter bench, the Facebook bulletin board keeps them up-to-date with what’s going on, and wetransfer delivers packages around town.
It’s nice to see the methods of connection that now happen on screen, as places and spaces. Just as long as the inhabitants of Civitacampomarano don’t take to poking each other.
Via. Design Boom
