In 1993, Allen Ruppersberg made the project Siste Viator (Stop Traveller) during the international art exhibition "Sonsbeek '93". The work is about the history of the battle of Arnhem and has connotations to all participants in the battle, the Dutch, English, Germans and Polish, through the popular wartime literature of each country. The piece was then presented to the public libray of Arnhem, which needed a new design for it's permanent presentation.

Together with Anja Bakker I made a new design, which was approved by the artist. Anja bakker and myself also built the piece, which was shown in Arnhem, Geneva, Frankfurt am Main, Düsseldorf, Dundee, Sevilla, Lyon.
