There's no place like home

Shopping centre Snel en Polanen, Woerden 2003

In shopping centre Snel en Polanen in the city of Woerden, well-known and made up proverbs about shopping and greed lay, like jewels, in the streets. Neon running hand letters form slogans which are framed in shapes of punctuation marks, like a comma, an underscore or parentheses, which in turn are moored into the pavement.
