RA_01 - Invader

RA_01 is a work of contemporary art made by Invader, French artist and writer inspired by the famous arcade game of 1978. Created on a wall of the city Astronomical Observatory (Planetarium) and presented in 2014 at the "Ravenna Mosaic" Festival, it is one of the rare public commissions made by an artist who works "invading" public spaces; it is also one of the largest pieces. It represents Dr. Spock of Star Trek as if waving an alien creature. The title RA_01 is composed by the Ravenna ZIP code letters "RA" plus the ordinal number 01, as the first and most important of the works released in Ravenna (so far in number of 40, spreaded throughout the city).
