Artist Matt Lyver Sells Tiny Urban Spaces by the Centimenter


Brighton artist Matt Lyver’s new project Free Space pokes fun at our relationship with rented space by putting minuscule spots around the British city up for sale by the centimeter. The 12 teeny-tiny spaces he used for the final version of the project consist of alleys, holes in walls, missing bricks, and other unused enclaves of indescribable purpose and various shapes and sizes. Probably the most original commentary on space and its monetary value since that guy sold his forehead for advertising on eBay, Lyver’s rentals don’t seem terribly unrealistic, considering how small some real New York City apartments are. Check out Free Space after the jump.
