The Lines Of The Landscape
|Author||Arjen Mulder E.a.|
|Publisher||Architectura & Natura|
When we look at the Dutch landscape, what do we see? It is completely man-made, which is actually something that the Dutch are proud of. The dead straight ditch, the dyke round the polder, and the channelled stream are all drawn lines, hence lines charged with time. You follow them with your gaze, instead of taking them in at a glance, these typical medial lines with a telluric effect. More than 25 contributors – photographers, artists, educators, writers, poets, designers – offer their personal analyses and interpretations of the particularities of the Dutch landscape in this publication. A landscape whose beauty is found in its adaptability, and in the fact that it never stands still.
