Floating Waters (2021)

‘Floating Waters’ interprets the stories inspired by ‘De Zuiderwaterlinie’. A portrayal of the relationship between man and water in the past, present and future.

We, especially in the Netherlands, are unconditionally connected to water. Besides the eternal struggle with the rising sea level, we have used water in the past to defend our country. By deliberately flooding an area (inundation), we stopped the enemy. Today, our struggle with water has taken a new turn. Where we used to have too much water, we are now facing a water shortage due to climate change. In the future we will therefore have to live more in harmony with the water around us.

The stories of water are translated into different water surfaces, which are realized in glass. The glass works can be seen as an ode to water and what it has meant to us and will mean in the future.
