Artist Brings “Real Life” Internet To The Elderly Residents Of a Village

Civitacampomarano is a village of 400 people in central Italy. Most of the residents are aged and many are out of touch with internet culture and the social media utilities available in the world.

So the street artist Biancoshock created low-tech simulations of them across the village.

They include a knowledgeable elderly lady who’s a speaking Wikipedia, a local newspaper labeled as an RSS feed, and a bulletin board called Facebook.
