Choice quote from an interview with Invader: "Initially there was the discovery of a relationship between pixelation and the mosaic, then the introduction of a video game into reality, and finally an invasion on a planetary scale." What I find striking is he has made the same connection I did between the pixel and earlier visual media.

Here's the full Interview with Invader and his website is called Space-Invaders. You can also look on Artsy.
