About the painting 'The Scream':
The Scream (Norwegian: Skrik) includes four versions of a composition, by the Expressionist artist Edvard Munch between 1893 and 1910. The original title is 'Der Schrei der Natur'. The painting has been described as "an icon of modern art, a Mona Lisa for our time."

On the KPN facade
Inspired by the SCREAM the artists mediated the screaming man. SCREAM is a looping animation on 21 x 42 pixels/leds.
Visible all over Rotterdam, on the facade of the KPN communication building, his desperate man is looping, haunting the city.

Under the image red text is running. In red running letters Rotterdam citizens could add live messages on fear experiences in the city of Rotterdam.
