Travelling Sand

Railway Station Square, Apeldoorn 2008

In front of Apeldoorn Railway Station, sands drift across a large glass wall. Stirred up by a gentle breeze, whirled around in surging storms or lulled to rest in moments of calm- programmed LEDs control the shifting patterns, causing minimal, sometimes tempestuous changes in the landscape. Also on a larger scale the landscape shifts, as the hills roam unhindered. Sometimes the sand heaps up to one side as if in the hollow of a dune, an impression reflected by the basin-shaped square.

Dim. 100 x 4 m
Etched glass, 1.3 million LEDs and control system
