Alticomtoren, Amsterdam 2009
With a big bang, on December 2nd in 2009, the work White Noise for the telecommunication tower at the Zuidas (Amsterdam) was opened. Every night, high up in the tower a dynamic image appears, a twinkeling universe where stars fall and planets light up, where meteorites swish by and small explotions take place. Every now and then, codes of letters and numbers pop up, as a sign of human communication.
