‘billboard house’ is a small dwelling annexed to one of the large urban canvases ubiquitous in densely populated mexico city. the campaign by scribe, underwritten by a consortium of ad agencies and marketing firms, recently hosted artist cecilia beaven for ten days while she drew the bold and whimsical requests of twitter followers. the prefabricated home served as her living quarters while she painted the imaginary creatures, absurd visions and fantastic dreams populating the minds of people across the city.
