Humvee project artist Krzysztof Wodiczko

13 11 2011

Project by the artist Krzysztof Wodiczko for GLOW 2011 in Eindhoven. In ‘War Veteran Vehicle’ a military vehicle that has served in war zones for the Dutch army is now driving through the streets of Eindhoven. It is equipped with a projector that fires words on the facades of the 18 September Square, accompanied by sounds. The projected images are quotes from national and local war veterans and their families. They explain why the transition from the battlefield to a civilian life has been difficult for them. With his work Wodiczko hopes that people will open their eyes for the traumatic effects military missions could cause. He offers war veterans and their families the opportunity to speak out in public and to share their experiences. At the same time he focuses on the personal problems of veterans in their own environment.
