Streetart – Biancoshock @ Ravenna, Italy

Location: Ravenna, Italy
Artist: Biancoshock (Italy)
For: Subsidenze Street Art festival
Art director: Bonobolabo

As in a crossword puzzle, everything in the social system must be defined, ordered and localized, creating a closed framework based on definitions and rules.
The most intimidating thing is the black box, seen as the interval of knowledge between one definition and another one.

The black boxes form the word UNTOLD. This word evokes all the untold stories of those who traveled and struggled to get here and live in that popular neighborhood.

The words in the crossword puzzle belong to 29 DIFFERENT LANGUAGES and most of them are related to the social inclusion and immigration issues. Two panels fixed to the wall show all the definitions written in the same language as the word to be guessed.
