Among the proposals, we highlight the Eltono in La Playa de Lavapies. The graffiti artist, who worked in Madrid for a decade and now lives in France, use public space as support, study and inspiration and has a deep knowledge of the rhythms, changes and the nature of the street.
Another interesting proposal is the Collective Algas en la Sopa for Taberna Alabanda. They have reinterpreted the meaning of Tibetan flags with cyanotype, which originally hung so that the wind purify the wishes illustrated in them. "Materializes in blue, the ocean, which unites the different continents, the sky, under which all coexist. On canvas, plants and objects that convey the essence of the neighborhood and as a talisman to bring good wishes to the people of the future of Lavapies " they explain in the web site of C.A.L.L.E.
We can also see BOXMAN, creation of collective HO for the Tobacconist of Lavapies. A cardboard creature born from the very seriality of mass and impersonal production systems and is designed to repetitively be constructed from an everyday such as cardboard boxes object. His spirit seeks to give a different point of this material and its meaning.
