Vice magazine just featured Street Ghosts project with an interview on the spot, while pasting illegal street art posters of pictures stolen from Google in Brooklyn:
Google's ghosts world wide tour started from Brooklyn one year ago, and now it's back with 7 new posters. Right there, right NOW! In Williamsburg and Bushwick, go to find them in person or browse on the map: http://goo.gl/maps/djCP9
And also in Brooklyn, Google fell into the trap-meta-loop for the first time, taking pictures of its own pictures, with a Street Ghost photographed in Google Street View: http://goo.gl/7EsrdC - Pics of the ghost poster: http://goo.gl/Vinlyo
