About 3 years ago the municipality of Eindhoven took the initiative to improve the appearance of tunnels in the city that were listed for maintenance. Tunnels typically are associated with dark uncomfortable public places that give you a sense of unease and you would rather avoid passing through. The municipality wanted to change this by inviting artist to create more appealing environments using light and colorful murals.

Story

About 3 years ago the municipality of Eindhoven took the initiative to improve the appearance of tunnels in the city that were listed for maintenance. Tunnels typically are associated with dark uncomfortable public places that give you a sense of unease and you would rather avoid passing through. The municipality wanted to change this by inviting artist to create more appealing environments using light and colorful murals. I wanted to explore whether after the changes the tunnels feel as more comfortable spaces to be in. I chose to photograph the tunnels at night as I imagined that the sense of unease would typically be most pronounced at this time of day and therefore the change would also be most noticeable. I had in mind a dark environment with the tunnel glowing in a warm inviting light that pulls you towards and invites you in.
