We always appreciate brilliant ideas and designs. Today we have come up with one more perfect example of creativity. William de Haan is a Dutch artist who has completed many projects successfully. He describes himself on social media as an “artist in civilian clothes.” Unlike many artists, he has a contemporary perspective on certain topics. For example, for his own exhibition, he focused on themes from the daily such as public transportation, spontaneity, history, etc. The artist recently came up with the idea of a tape measure curtain for Gallery for Scale.
Yes, the idea is very creative, right? The perfect curtain that separates the rooms of Team Thursday and TTHQ is a tape measure curtain. And for what? Of course, for the Gallery for Scale. With this curtain, the artist and exhibition organizers can reflect the theme of the exhibition itself.
You can change the shape of the yellow curtain made of tape measures whenever you want. As the artist used actual tape measures, the measures have buttons that help them roll out and in. With this way of thinking, Team Thursday and TTHQ have a great time with the curtains. because it was like a fun game for them.
The tape measure curtain is 305 cm wide with a variable length. In order to see which shapes could be achieved, both the artist and the organizers kept changing the shape, like a fireplace, a door, all closed, etc. People on social media reacted to this yellow curtain with great astonishment. Some people loved this idea, and they asked where to buy this curtain. But some of them said that they have concerns regarding safety. Because the tape is steel-framed and can be dangerous when you are not careful. But opponents also found the idea very creative for the theme of the exhibition.
