Willem Oorebeek made the work in 2014 The Individual Parallel - Bilderberg Utopia for the north façade of the Bilderberg Parkhotel. The 604 composite dots can be seen from Westersingel, and have since become a familiar sight in the Rotterdam street scene. The work is included in the international sculpture collection of Sculpture International Rotterdam (SIR).

This month SIR is publishing a special edition, a video film that Oorebeek based on the 604 possible meanings of this artwork. The edition will be presented on 31 March in the Bilderberg Parkhotel; Afterwards Oorebeek tells in the lecture "Bild, or ...?" about his own position as an artist in public space.
