r1 and Isaac


r1 sent over a few photos of a recent piece, The tower of Isaac, and this explanation of it:

This is Isaac.

He does not have any possessions or family members. Isaac has a speech impediment, is unemployed and homeless. He lives underneath this tree next to the highway and keeps the surrounding area clean from debris. During the day he collects tins, bottles and plastics and recycles it for a small amount of money 5km away.

I am a street artist. In this piece I interacted with Isaac and collaborated with him by assembling his plastic bottles into a wired mesh. We installed it around a streetlight tower 800m away from his home (the tree).

This is Isaac’s tower.
