I was looking for information about a man who makes art out of abandoned row houses to raise awareness of issues like housing affordability and poverty and happened to come across this article instead. It has few really cool examples of art is surprising urban spaces which I was thinking a lot about after our public space lecture. What do you think? http://weburbanist.com/2015/01/07/art-in-abandoned-places-15-unexpected-urban-installations/
Also, still looking for information about the aforementioned artist if you have any clues.
