Parking Day, Witte de Withstraat, Tent, Rotterdam, 2016

A local line painting company is commissioned to write the
word 'slow' by hand, directly onto the road, imitating standard
letter shapes and techniques used in screed marking. Part of
a series of works investigating movement, behaviour and
materials in public space – particularly looking at the rhythms
and movements of workers who implement signage systems
in relation to the public who respond to it. Rather than writing
the letters by hand, the company used stencils to make the
letter shapes, except for an improvised 'L'.
