In this new series of outdoor installations artist Biancoshock has turned abandoned manhole covers on the streets of Milan into cramped miniature rooms complete with hanging artwork, kitchen utencils, and tiled walls. Titled Borderlife, the artist says the admittedly humorous pieces are meant to draw attention to a more serious issue in Bucharest, where many hundreds of people now live underground in the sewer system. You can learn more about these newest interventions on his website and on Facebook. (via StreetArtNews, This Isn’t Happiness)
