Night Vision – Thijs Kelder 2015

The work “Night Vision” was created by artist Thijs Kelder (Studio Ruwedata) with the full support of WORM. The collage takes as its subject the atmosphere and history of the Witte de Withstraat in Rotterdam.

“Night Vision” is a collage of transparent, coloured plexiglass.

The Witte de Withstraat gained fame as a street that offered art and entertainment in equal measure; and one that had an illustrious history full of sex workers, dope and wild nightlife. Over the last few years however, it has become increasingly sanitised. Night Vision, is a collage full of typographic phraseology, slang and in -yer-face “sloganism”.
