Daniel Bejar is an artist with a project he calls GooglegÃ¤nger. Daniel Bejar is also the name of a musician from Vancouver.
This is what Bejar did: He grew his hair into a frizzy mane, and he grew a beard, and then he set about re-creating some of the most widely circulated images of Bejar the musician, who has frizzy hair and a beard. Their faces arenâ€™t identicalâ€”Bejar the artist has a more assertive brow and a narrower faceâ€”but the resemblance in the images is pretty close. He called his project â€œThe GooglegÃ¤nger,â€ and he put his work online. So far, at least two reviews of the new Destroyer album, â€œKaputt,â€ have been accompanied by images of Bejar instead of Bejar.
