Artist Installs Miniature Rooms Into Abandoned Manholes in Italy

Artist Biancoshock recently retrofitted a series of abandoned manholes in the Italian cities of Lodi and Milan. The artist turned the abandoned spaces into miniature versions of a kitchen, bathroom and living room.

Biancoshock says the project’s goal was to raise awareness for disenfranchised people in places like Bucharest where ‘more than 600 people live underground in the sewers’. He cited this article for more information on the issue and wanted to use his art to speak about people living in extreme conditions.
