The project started with my attraction to and love for letters in the street. I started to take pictures of them. And after a while I had quite collection of pictures. I live in the Marolles in Brussels, so lots of the pictures were from this neighbourhood.
I felt the need to do something with it and in combination with screen printing in the academy of Anderlecht, I started playing with some of the pictures, like ‘Maison du Motel’ above. It used to be on Place Jeu de balle, next to Chaff. But as it goes with time… it changes… and so do the signs.
Little pieces of history, a word telling a story… telling it’s life just by showing the bruises and scars, or by proudly stating what it stands for.
