Shantytown Simulacra

These simulated favelas created by Spanish artist Dionisio Gonzalez are magnificent. The simulations echo the ad hoc architecture of the shantytowns of Sao Paulo. As well as the pure imaginative chaos they evoke, I like that they come across as thoughtful without seeming either to exploit or glorify the real favelas.

(Metafilterrific.)

1. Those are great

2. I want to start a band called Shantytown Simulacra

3. Scratch that; the band will be called The Bryan Tradup Experience, and the first *album* will be called Shantytown Simulacra
