Teerosen

Teerosen: three drawings hidden in the soil of the Veluwe

2014

Research project; cahier, lecture and book

The Teerosen were three military installations built by the Germans in WWII to fight allied air forces and to support their own air force. On RAF aerial photographs, they appear as white line drawings in the dark. I made maps based on these RAF photographs and contemporary Google photographs and I used these maps to walk the disappeared lines that once shaped these drawings . During these walks I documented the buildings and other objects that, however transformed by time, still point to the war past of this area. I concluded my research by advising to preserve these objects as well as to allow time to continue their transformations.
