Forever Young

2005

'Forever Young' by Martijn Sandberg is a site-specific artwork integrated in the new OSG Singelland College building in Drachten, the Netherlands. The artwork is a point relief design which is applied to the entire facade of a kidney-shaped school building situated on the roofed-over central square of the state comprehensive 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.
