Decorated Manholes Raise Awareness Around Europe’s Homeless

Milan-based street artist and activist Biancoshock is using his latest project, called Borderlife, to raise awareness around Europe’s homeless population. The artist transforms emptied manholes across Italy into tiny, decorated living spaces—complete with clocks, potted plants, and other household appliances. The cramped underground spaces remind passers-by that many of their less fortunate neighbors live without homes and are forced to dwell below ground.
