Cut to Reveal
The aim of the project is to expose how the polder system works, how it used to work and how it could become experienced as a part of a recreational polder landscape. The tool used to achieve this is cutting - cut through, cut off, cut out, cut up. While the act of cutting seemingly disrupts the strict polder logic, the visitor is invited to go 'inside' the polder and explore the sliced landscape.
Land is a poured thing and time a surface film lapping
and fringing at fastness, at a hundred hollow and
Breathe fast: we’re backing off the rim.
- Annie Dillard
