Street art of lamp post men carrying bins as backpacks

Lamp post men carrying bins as backpacks. It sounds weird but that is the latest street intervention to hit Vila Madalena, São Paulo.

The project was started up by Mentalgassi, a Berlin-based art collective, and Muntano a Brazilian street artist. It has bins being reimagined as rucksacks and a pasted on photo of the carrier going on the lamp post.

It is supposed to be a tribute to the catadores of São Paulo, unofficial wastecollectors who scour the streets for recyclable rubbish in order to earn a few cents per kilo through the recycling centres. The message is indirect but it is supposed to "increase the visibility" of catadores, as well as call "attention to purchases and donation bins for recyclable materials"

Here are a few photos of the new bins. It will most likely be a very ephemeral intervention so enjoy the while you can:

At the same time the bulb should be fixed loosely as spark may be produced on the terminal, making excessive load on the ballast which may business lead to breakdown of the lamp. Recycle Rear Projection TV

I was first introduced to the Stiffel lamps and lampshades when we were furnishing a new home during one of my many career moves. Saina Purohit Stiffel lamps are quite heavy and very well made.
