Dear Hans,

This is a very beautiful and effective installation, and as you said, the sound of the card was able to cut through the background noise of the traffic. Graffiti art has always had a slightly ‘naughty’ if not illegal aspect to it. It’s also fairly low cost (the price of a spray can). Your sound intervention certainly fits into that way of doing things.
