The work Night Vision, created by artist Thijs Kelder with the full support of WORM, takes as its subject the atmosphere and history of the Witte de Withstraat in Rotterdam. 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 hookers, dope and nightlife. Over the last few years however, it has become increasingly sanitised. Night Vision, is a collage of transparent, coloured plexiglass full of typographic phraseology, slang and in -yer-face “sloganism”.
