The little building is located at a busy intersection where cars, bikers and pedastrians of all ages cross paths. Which is why I got the idea to gather phrases about roads. Residents of the Broekpolder area were invited to send in Dutch phrases containing the word 'de weg', meaning 'road'. More than 100 phrases and expressions were submitted for the artwork.
Thanks to Hans Blomvliet, Ton Talmon, Ellen Palsgraaf, Sanne Bruggink/Het Plot, Jan Samson, Nanon Soeters, Joke Ruys, Gemeente Heemskerk/Beverwijk, KPN and all the people who responded to my call for Dutch phrases.
