Gijs Van Vaerenbergh


along a walk and bike trail in the green hills of Limburg, Belgium


last friday




we couldn't wait until it was finished




wanting to see the work in progress



construction works almost done



welders are securing the layers of steel, 30 tons in weight



from a distance, the structure is transparent



it gets more interesting coming closer where optical effects make parts of it look solid



the steel structure is a copy on a 1:3 scale of the nearby church
