De Belastingdienst en DUO Groningen 2014
In the open square by the entrance to the building is a large black steel box with a pattern of wavy lines cut into it. Peering in through the gaps reveals a system made up of tubes and cylinders, steps and little bridges. The box leads down into the car park. Walking underneath it, you can look up into the box. From here, you can see that the tubes and cylinders seem to drip light onto the floor of the car park.
I want to show that we still rely on big machinery that keeps everything running for us. An information refinery that doesn’t give up its secrets easily. Through the slits in the black box, you can catch a glimpse of the processes taking place inside. In the evening, a strange light emanates from the black box on the square, suggestive of the workings of a large brain.
