Plates of Peace

In the future
When the speed in life intesifies - due to the increasing amount of information, demanding need of mobility and flexibility - the need for moments of peace and stillness also increase. A personal need of blocking out the troublesome takes place. We prefer to sink into peacefulness and forget to take an active role in the community.

Peace has a way to neutralize any action - even when they are justified.

Future Scenario
To make people less aggressive and demanding this type of images will be distributed in the city - in places that look boring, depressing or otherwise causing "negative" feelings. In areas with more crime and violence you see the picture-plates everywhere.

The pragmatic thinking behind these image-plates, reveals the need for efficiency. A roughness which stand in contrast to the airy dreams in the pictures. The image-plate is attached to the wall with two heavy bolts, totally insensitive, in the middle of the picture.
