All of Bufalino’s projects are placed in public space. In doing so, he triggers interaction from the public. His latest effort to bring the community together yet again involved old vehicles. How about a mobile home-turned-pool party that you can take across the city? Or an old Ford Mondeo that has been revamped as a full-fledged wood-fire pizza oven?
Another recurring theme in Bufalino’s work is sports in atypical places. These spaces can be utterly impractical at times, but they never fail to challenge you. Play ping-pong on top of an upside down car, football on a brick wall, or tennis on top of a truck. He even turned a perfectly normal apartment into a surreal tennis court by painting its floor and installing a tiny net in a doorway. It’s definitely not sports as you know it – but the fact that Bufalino reshapes the playing field in a way you’d never had imagined, makes it even more inviting to try and engage in the game.
