In 2012 I voted for the political party D66. They have made promises, which I thought would be very helpful for the Netherlands. I have been told that these promises would be fulfilled by the end of last year. Thought, that never happened. Not only D66, but also all the other parties made a lot of promises to make improvement in certain sectors, which all never came true.
For this project I made a billboard to paste posters on. Just like the boards they fill with campaign posters. I printed 12 campaign posters of 2012 in black and white. The colorful posters represent their colorful words which never became true so they remained black and white. The posters are hung up straight, but the more promises are being added, the more distorted the complete image gets.
I captured the process of creation by a video. The execution of this project took place in front of the Tweede Kamer, to enhance it’s message. While seeing me creating the collage you can hear the voi- ces of the party leaders making promises. The sounds overlap more and more towards the end.
