The Salt Marshes
Terschelling | 2014
Wadland was a large collective art installation of willow-shoots, inspired by the painting ‘Pier and Ocean’ by Mondriaan, the next step in Cultural Landscape Development. Where Pannenland’s intention was to make the process of dune formation visible, Wadland focused on the process of salt marsh formation. And as with Pannenland, students and visitors were asked to participate. The impetus behind this exploration came from the Municipality of Terschelling’s plans for the restoration of the salt marshes beyond the dikes, on the south side of the island. Wadland, was thereby an experimental project with willow-shoots planted in a 150 by 150 metre area.
