Schrootvis-machine

After a few afternoons of ‘magnetfishing’ in the canals of Leeuwarden with the help of a group of teens, a big pile of scrap was collected. The request fell to me to create a work of art out of this material. The idea that arose was to create a working crane which could fish even more scrap from the canals. In doing so, the crane could collect spare parts for itself, or even for a new crane, while cleaning the canals of debris and garbage.  Commissioned by the Frysian Environmental Federation and organization “De 8​ste​ Dag” ( The 8th day)
