Highway art - art in the road environment
In 1983 the National Highway Administration of the Netherlands invited three artists to develop ideas about integrating art in the road environment. Highway A15 runs from west to east across the Netherlands - from the North Sea to almost the German border. Maybe the visual impact of art would have given this highway environment more character, where there are now concrete walls with graffiti - in 1983 I proposed a meandering mound along this particular stretch which would serve as a future noise barrier, while it was actually a grand four kilometers long earthwork.
