Many cities across the globe are utilizing the “tiny house movement” to help individuals in need, specifically the homeless. For example, there is a place in Portland, Oregon called The Tiny House Village which is essentially a homeless refuge where residents are required to stay for a 60-day probational period before becoming a permanent resident of the village which has been named an “intentional community” by outsiders as an important step to curb the skyrocketing homeless population.

Italian urban artists, Biancoshock took the idea of tiny living to the next level, creating unbelievably creative almost-liveable spaces out of manholes in Milan’s Lodi District. The artists main goal with this work is to bring attention to the fact that hundreds of underprivaledged people in Bucharest, Romania call the sewege system home.

Tiny Home, Tiny Kitchen

Tiny Home, Tiny Kitchen
According to Biancoshock, if it's impossible to eliminate the problem of homelessness, why not make them comfortable. Within this manhole, the artist managed to cram a tiny kitchen in the manhole, one that sits in sharp contrast with its surroundings.

Art Is Limitless

Art is Limitless
In Biancoshock's own words, "Ephemeralism has the purpose of producing works of art have to exist briefly in space, but limitlessly in time through photography, video and media."

What an interesting concept!
