Giacomo Castagnola: Common Trades, Urban Metabolism of Knowledge, L.A. Version

Giacomo Castagnola: Common Trades, Urban Metabolism of Knowledge, L.A. Version

Born and raised in Peru, Mexico City and San Francisco-based artist/designer Giacomo Castagnola has mapped where LA's traditional Latin American food vending carts are built by interviewing the tradespeople who build them—many of whom are immigrants from Latin America. Castagnola has created a video documenting the tradespeople's process and the alternative, micro-economies within which many of them conduct business.
