POW! WOW! Daily #7: A six frame animation about the pandemic


In the penultimate POW! WOW! Daily, we take a look at what goes into preparing the 20 VANS 30 CANS event during a pandemic, and how Rotterdam’s official city artist Erico Smit translates part of this remarkable year into art. His canvas is the tea house in the Afrikaanderpark, which he made into a six-frame animation to be played by walking around it.

During the week of POW! WOW! Rotterdam 2020, we’ll update you each day with a video report. Tune in daily at 21:00h (9:00h PM) CET at instagram.com/powwowrotterdamvimeo.com/powwowrotterdam or powwowrotterdam.nl.

FAKE is unfortunately forced to stay at home during POW! WOW! Rotterdam

With all the murals and vehicle art being created this week, there is plenty of beauty to see in the Afrikaanderwijk. But we would also release two intervention artists to do their thing in the neighborhood. In the meantime one -Dazetwo- is busy creating his characteristic ravens and crows all over the neighborhood, but you haven’t seen anything of the other one yet. That may be true, because FAKE has let us know that he’s not coming to POW! WOW! Rotterdam.

With good reason. His health simply doesn’t allow it at the moment. Don’t worry, FAKE doesn’t suffer from the corona virus, but he ensured us that he’s not able to travel to Rotterdam at the moment.

We wish him all the best from the Afrikaanderwijk and we’ll meet the future!
