an (im)possible spectacle

23 Sep

I’ve mentioned Alexander Trevi’s (Im)possible Chicago project before. But #28 is worth checking out. Usually more apocalyptic, or at least dramatic, this installment just conjures the oddest images. It’s also refreshing to see someone talking about the homeless population with some creativity and humor, rather than the shameful mousiness we’re all used to.

Once considered a nuisance, now the homeless in their ghillie suits are welcomed ornamental additions to the city’s public spaces. … Before when they came together to commiserate, they were loitering; now it’s a pop-up Versailles.
