Morgen Komt Alles Goed

2013

A rectangular paved artwork by Martijn Sandberg, is located in the middle of the new square Kraaipan plein at the Hofmeyrstraat in the Transvaalbuurt, Amsterdam.
Lines of paving stones delineate a text in the paving. A hidden message to the square's visitors, neighbourhood residents and passers-by. Over and over again when seeing it anew, every day, today, and forever: 'Tomorrow everything will be alright'.

The message 'Tomorrow everything will be alright' emerges from the pattern of the paving stones, depending on the position and the angle of vision from which one looks at the figuration in the paved artwork: while walking over the square, from the corners on the street side and the Kraaipan School side. But also from above, from the floors of buildings surrounding the square.
