Skid Robot The Art Living Project
For those who have never experienced homelessness first hand, it is hard to relate to those without a roof over their heads. Huge programs have been rolled out to take these people out of sight, either by criminalising or victimising them. With a rhetoric of individual responsibility prevailing, taking them out of mind is also made easy. Extreme poverty and deprivation is a global phenomenon, but through Skid Robot’s graffiti, the homeless in Los Angeles are not just numbers but people with needs, desires and dreams painted on the walls behind them. What would it take for these needs to be fulfilled? What if housing as a human right would finally be universally respected?
