NOORDERZON (MIDNIGHT SUN)
Marking of the location of ‘Huis te Vleuten’ below the railway between Utrecht and Rotterdam. Commissioned by ProRail.
Beneath all the new development remains all that has been lost, and this design intends to make this absence visible.
If the daily things around us become visible with the light of the morning sun, this design intends to contrast this with the midnight sun;
The Midnight Sun is a source that brings hidden memories back into the light
and shadows of lost objects,
reflections of hidden tracks
and echoes of forgotten stories are brought back to the surface.
Design: 2006 in collaboration with Ingmar Heytze
