Forever Young

'Forever Young' by Martijn Sandberg is a site-specific artwork integrated in the OSG Singelland College building in Drachten, The Netherlands. The artwork is in point relief on the entire facade of the curved building situated on the roofed-over central square of the school.
A universal refrain, spreading over the pavilion’s skin like a form of acne: 'Sleep All Day, Party All Night, Forever Young, Never Grow Old'.
