The missing A3, 2015


The missing A3, 2015


Series of paper cutouts of highway intersections, colored pencil on acid free paper, each 42 x 29.7 cm

All the intersections occurring on each of the highways A1 to A10 in the Netherlands were drawn on top of each other, colored in with colored pencil and then cut out. Each road intersecting one of the highways has its own color. The cutouts are hung with the colored side to the wall.

Each cutout is A3 size–the A3 in the Netherlands though never built is still present in the dimensions of the paper.


A2, A4, A7 and A8
