The Hague Poetry

On occasion of the Poetryweek the municipality of The Hague wants to put the city on the map as a poetry-city. By doing so the municipality hopes to give the city extra exposure and defines The Hague even more as culture-city.

The project will consist of four locations throughout the Hague in which I will edit the reality of these places in the same way poetry edits little things in our imagination. Things that our eyes are used to will become different, but only on a minor basis. Within every location, words will be added to the scenery that refer to poetry in such a way, that its placement and design will also link back to its poetic origin and structure: poetic expressions will become real time visualisations. For every location a demonstrating video will be made in which the concept becomes clear.
