‘Volt’ TenneT Oil Pressure Unit

‘Volt’ is an ode to electricity and imagination, a portal to a parallel electric universe called SellFable. It has almost become impossible to imagine life without electricity. ‘Volt’ lovingly wraps cortensteel around an important electric installation owned by TenneT TSO. The weathering steel provides a strong and durable protection of the Oil Pressure Unit. The warm colour of the rusted steel, the poetic appearance of the artwork and use of LED-light contribute to a feeling of safety and a positive vibe in the Rotterdam neighbourhood. The intricately drawn and lasercut facade alone measures 4 x 6 meters and weighs close to 2,7 tonnes.
