POLDERKAMER (Polder Room) part of www.waterkader.nl 2001

As yet there is little sign of any building activity in this polder where a new neighbourhood is planned. On a dam (barrier for the water) in a canal (barrier for the land-traveler/connection for waterspecies, boats) a black container blocks the little road. Large openings (‘windows’) on the long side of the container give a view of the water, visible to anyone sitting in the container. During the day the container is open at both ends and chairs are installed for visitors. The road block becomes a passage, a meeting point. Throughout one week conversations took place between the landscape, people in the landscape, future inhabitants of the new neighbourhood. The dialogue took place in words, images and sounds.
