Dawn along Mud Way_04 at Rammegors in Zeeland. The ground is being scraped to make it ready for a breach in the sea dike after which it will turn from a fresh water nature reserve to a salt marsh.

140714_Thought for the Day
Artist Cora Jongsma has drawn over the tracks of a Medieval highway as they are shown on a height map of the Ballooerveld in Drenthe. The cart wheels that have cut into the sandy ground are marked as red lines. She will translate the meshwork of lines into a felt work.
In the words of the artist:
'By understanding the genius loci of the landscape, behind the appearance of which natural or human processes are laying, I can remake the landscape in wool.’

Sculpture by Henry Moore.
'I have always been very interested in landscape…I find that all natural forms are a source of unending interest - tree trunks, the growth of branches form the trunk, each finding its own individual air-space.'

Henry Moore

Built between 1883 & 1885 by the Newcastle firm Armstrong Mitchell & Co. this hydraulic crane is the only one of its kind left. The Venice in Peril Fund is working towards  it’s restoration. In the meantime blue straps help to keep the ballast tank from bulging.

On show at the Venice Bienale is a study of the shifting boundary between Italy and the countries with which it bounds as it runs through glaciers. In ‘Italian Limes’ the authors write ‘Natural borders (limites de re), apparently unquestionable and self-evident, unveil the political dimension intrinsic to the problem of representing territory. Unlike artificial boundaries (limites de dicto, based on abstract numerical coordinates), natural frontiers are subject to the complexity of continuous ecological processes, and depend on the technology and norms we use to represent them. Their definition evolves along with our ability to define space and time.’

The initiative group 'Een Gooie Bak' are working on a possible use for an underground room measuring 16 x 16 x 120 metres. It may become a laboratory for sustainable development through the innovative way in which so-called ‘light-bodies’ bring daylight and air into the underground trough.

The project is part of 'My Town' local community initiative which is to become ‘a testing ground for economic, social and governmental renewal’.
