A big facebook “I like” in Naples
The beautiful installation “I like Naples” designed by the italian artist and designer IABO, for the open-air exhibition Luminaria 03 curated by Simona Perchiazzi, consists in a PVC light panel (200x270x15cm) depicting the famous icon “I like” used by Facebook, one of the most popular social networks. The work “I Like Naples” was installed on the front of San Giacomo Palace (City Hall – Naples, Italy). IABO plays with an immaterial sign carrying it from virtual to the real world.
The strength of this action is to be found in the transition of the insubstantial symbol “I like”, composed of pixels, from the Internet artificial world to the physical existence.
I like it, and you?
