I introduced a perfectly straight - east-west - line of Italian poplar trees. Artistic interventions - proposals for Highway A15

As far as the eye reaches, a perfectly straight - east-west - vertical plane of Italian Poplar trees would guide the motorists on Highway A15 through the endless flat landscape. The highway winds through the landscape with large, flowing curves.

It is my way of giving the motorists a visual game to play - a challenge with expectations and actual perception of the landscape and the directions which are there, but not normally perceived.
