Streetcarpet

Sprayable 3-component road marker
Henrick de Keijserstraat, Amsterdam
Realisation: 2010
Commissioner: Housing Corporation Stadgenoot
Art Advisor: Artpartner

This permanent carpet, sand-yellow like the lower part of the adjacent housing facades, connects the identical buildings lining Henrick de Keijserstraat and infuses this former working-class area with a liveliness of days past.

Graphic depictions of objects are set into the carpet and reveal something about the neighborhood and the professions of the inhabitants (a nursing bra, a human brain, or a Gillette shaving knife). They are portrayed in such a way that at first sight they seem like classical carpet patterns.
