The End of Signature

Location: Radboudtoren, Catharijnesingel
Artist: Agniezka Kurant

Will handwriting ever disappear completely? Will writing turn out to be a strange habit of a bygone civilisation? To be on the safe side, Polish artist Agniezka Kurant asked all the residents of the Radboud high-rise to put their signatures on paper. With the aid of software, she then blended them into a single giant signature which is projected onto the building at nightfall. A gigantic moving light sculpture. Faced with a loss of individual authorship, writing affords immortality.
