Planimetria Abitata (Living Blueprint)

Planimetria Abitata (Living Blueprint) is a site specific artwork created at the Museo dell’Altro e dell’Altrove (Museum of the Other and the Elsewhere) in Rome, Italy. This museum is unique in that it is situated in an occupied industrial complex, home to some 80 families including immigrants, refugees, artists and local activists. The work was made with the cyanotype process, which historically was used to create “blue prints,” reproductions of architectural floor plans. For this project, a living blue print was created with residents of the site and is now part of the museum’s permanent exhibition.
