SPAYING GRAFFITI FOR PRESS FREEDOM: "JOURNALISM REVEALS THINGS"
Laser 3.14 made a special window drawing revolving around scandals. The work, commissioned by Free Press Unlimited, highlights the importance of investigative journalism in the Netherlands and beyond. Investigative journalism has exposed many scandals in recent years. From de ‘toeslagenaffaire’ to the ‘mondkapjesdeal’. Laser 3.14: “Nowadays it is difficult to know which information is true and what is fiction. Investigative journalism gives us the uncolored facts. I also try to establish this with my art, my words often relate to current events. My ambition is to inspire people to consider different perspectives. The artwork for Free Press Unlimited is a good example of this.” - The window drawing is placed on a window of the Volkshotel, Wibautstraat 150 in Amsterdam.
It was all too palpable
The presentable man
Opened his heart
And beamed out a rainbowLet’s rearrange your disarrayIt’s not your fault
The shards sparkle
And the soft rain
Brings out a rainbow
Asked for a reputable man
When you’re translucentNobody sees you
And love comes by proxy
Let’s whisper goodbye to this Eden
Let’s wave goodbye to this Eden
Let’s say goodbye to this Eden
