Perpetuum mobile stands for perpetual motion.
This project was my reaction to the emptiness in Schiedam.
In the city of Schiedam the vacancy in the shopping streets is constantly increasing.
And for the city, this is seen as a grave problem that needs to be solved.
The city needs to be busy, and constant in motion.
With this work, I wanted to see a different kind of motion, one that is accepting this emptiness.
I saw beauty in the emptiness and wanted to embrace these dull empty windows.
Walking through these streets feels like a sad and inert but beautiful dance that does not seem to end.
