Work from: Dead Pixel in Google Earth, Parking for White Cars Only, FLAMMA and Skirting Board Sunset. I urge you to check out his entire public works section, all of the pieces are smart and compelling.

“I believe that every situation, thought or object carries a good work of art in itself. I search for this artwork by going back to the basis and to observe from that point an inner contradiction and to find a simple solution for this contradiction. Subsequently I use the medium most suitable for that concept.” – Helmut Smits
