Art project 24 Electrical cabinets ‘Ogensnoep’
Inspired by chaekgeori (Korean, translation ‘books and things’) still lifes, designer Harmen Liemburg asked the children of group 5 of Arnhem primary school Kunstrijk to draw a picture of their ten most cherished possessions. This resulted in a colourful picture of what can be found in children’s rooms.
These drawings were the starting point for building a picture collection. The selected electrical boxes were drawn in Adobe Illustrator and placed side by side in order of size.
Layer by layer, this created one large nursery landscape with a final length of 36 metres at full size. The physical division into sides, fronts and sometimes backs creates independent compositions that also flow into each other. All cabinets have their own theme and atmosphere.
Ogensnoep (Eye Candy) is a project by Plaatsmaken
commissioned by Gemeente Arnhem
