Find Bowie game (updated again)

May 19, 2024 Update: Does the Stardust Diner Count? I say yes.

April 21, 2024 update: I originally posted this on December 24, 2023 but updated it with a few new photos, though the real reason I’m re-posting it is because its a fun one that I don’t think too many people saw. So enjoy, and try it— play the game…

Since his death, and maybe before, David Bowie (or his lightning bolt symbol) has become a nearly ubiquitous cultural phenomenon. If you start looking, you will find him all over the place. This is such the case that you can actually make a game out of it— find Bowie. The object is to be the first to find Bowie…somewhere. This gallery is of pictures I personally took in New York City, Buffalo, Albany, Jersey City, the New York Thruway and even Salzburg, Austria. Bowie is just about everywhere.

The game is not just to find Bowie in public art— it counts to find a book about Bowie in a bookstore, or an exhibit about Bowie in a museum. If you tried to play a similar game with, say, Taylor Swift, you’re going to find less of her, especially outside venues advertising her actual current output. Anyway, the next time you have some time and are walking around a city somewhere, see how long it takes you to find Bowie.
