Just Humming Along in the City… (or Should That be Buzzing?)

It’s been a while since I’ve done a post on some of the Electrical Substations that have been decorated around the Den Haag (The Hague) commissioned by the Geemente (City Council) in the last years. I think from memory that the “back” side of this on was only painted plain red or black,  (at least there was no image on the back to take a photo of).  There’s something ironic (or should  I say subliminal?) too about putting a “humming” image on an Eletrical Substation, don’t you think? Enjoy!

  1. Oh your substations! I love this series! 🙂 I think this is such a great idea: public art + public utilities.
