I chose this location because i personnaly can relate to it. Coming from a street art and graffiti background I thought this would be the right place for me to transform. I love the idea of the concept so I visited the place and took some pictures to get an in situ inspiration.
The idea of making a “photo boot” immediately came to my mind and i stuck to it. Since Differdange is famous for its steel industry my choice of material was rusted steel. The bench is in a heart shape and the couples can sit in it whether to steal kisses from each other, or to take some lovely pictures of themselves. Unfortunately the background wall is decorated with some rather less beautiful graffitis, therefore I would like to paint it so that everything comes atmospherically together. I chose graffiti and the phrase “remember the first kiss”. The lettering is a mixture between traditionnal graffiti and tattoo script, so that it looks fresh and that the youth will appreciate it and do not cross it. If I had chosen a normal font, chances that somebody goes over it are much higher…
