Geef me de ruimte
During the end of 2020 we were approached by @housseinbouziane and @jhmfvbilsen from @madebyrotterdam.
Madeby is working on a strong diverse and multidisciplinair art and culture climate which represents Rotterdam society.
They approached us to contribute on the project www.geefmederuimte.nl (give me some space) This project uses the public space to communicate a positive message during those hard corona times. The object can now be observed as a time monument. A reminder of our will to be connected during hard times. The cube stands out among the surrounding architecture thus making it a recognisable meeting spot.
We decided to make a mural about connection. During the pandemic connection is a more important subject than ever. We want to connect but can’t. The classic handshake is a symbol of connection. The will to touch each other is big. We should support each other during those unstable times. Keep your distance but stay in touch!
We made the last icon a fistbump a well used way of greeting during covid times but also one that is celebrated in street culture.
