Artist Ramon Coronado created a piece called "Mercado Negro" ('black market' in Spanish) by reclaiming a Los Angeles shopping cart to create kids furniture as a statement about the shortage of recreational space in Los Angeles, California.
"Shopping carts exist everywhere and anywhere throughout the city of LA and include themselves as part of LA's landscape. A shopping cart says a lot about a city. Seeing one on every block adds attention to the poverty and that there is no control of private property." - Ramon Coronado
"The project is a criticism of the scarcity of recreational functions for kids growing up in a dense city like
Los Angeles." - Ramon Coronado
