It is common to see abandonded houses in Buenos Aires with the windows and doors cemented up, to stop people occupying the buildings when they are vacant. It has always slightly disturbed me and I always wonder when I see one for sale, how do you inspect it? Do they wait until people are interested in the property and then smash in the doors and windows? Anyway, this rocket-ship street art is a pretty cool way to make the non-window less creepy and much more colourful.
I am an Australian who has been living in Buenos Aires, Argentina for four years. My perception of the city has changed as I have adapted to my environment and new home. I am somewhere between a tourist and a local and find beauty in my everyday environment.
