As fears of a euro meltdown continue apace, a guerrilla war of Post-it note art has broken out in office spaces across corporate Paris.
The first shot was fired four months ago, when employees at French computer gaming company Ubisoft – maker of the popular “Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell” and “Ghost Recon” game series – put up a Post-it note image from the 1980s classic “Space Invaders” on the window.
“We stuck Space Invader character on our window and the day after, BNP (Paribas), which is the largest bank in France, just across the way, they drew a Pac-Man,” Fabrice Cambonet of Ubisoft told CNN.
Collages swept across office spaces in the business district of La Défense and companies in the Issy-les-Moulineaux area of the French capital. The art ranges from simple representations of Tweety Bird or Bart Simpson, to seven-story high illustrations that use thousands of Post-it notes and complex, computer-designed plans.
