DEGRADE

A collage made of posters found at the Olympic Stadium (Amsterdam)

A couple weeks after King’s Day, a national holiday in the Netherlands, I was walking past the Olympic stadium in Amsterdam when I noticed posters falling from the wall. They were part of a campaign to promote Post Malone’s new album which he released on the same day as our national holiday. I really liked the way the ink was starting to detach from the paper, creating a craquelure effect,  so I decided to take them home and made this collage.

The collage will rapidly degrade over time as the ink will continue to detach, so even when it’s ready, the composition will evolve by itself, and I’ll keep this page updated with its progress
