Duomo Chameleon Will Make You Do a Double-Take

I didn’t know what to think when I first saw ‘Duomo Chameleon’ from Carter Schwarberg. This live piece of performance art features Schwarberg painted to match the facade of Sante Maria del Fiore in Florence, Italy.

Schwarberg eventually emerges from the side of the building, much to the surprise of the tourists and citizens alike. I like the whole human-against-history vibe that Schwarberg puts off by blending into the background of the building.
