Giant fried egg sculptures sunny side up in Leeuwarden

Filed under: Art by Branko Collin @ 3:43 pm

Google Maps and Google Earth introduced a new rule for the makers of public art: your art must be visible from outer space. Henk Hofstra certainly applies this new rule with vigour: first there was the river street in Drachten, now he’s installed a project called Art Eggcident in Leeuwarden, which consists of giant fried eggs on the Frisian’s capital’s Zaailand square. Many more photos at Hofstra’s site.

Big long blue line of water

Filed under: Art by Orangemaster @ 8:00 am

A 1 km art “installation” by artist Henk Hofstra, located in Drachten, The Netherlands. The road, which should be seen via Google Maps (Earth) soon, has the big text “WATER IS LIFE” written on it, and used 4,000 litres of paint.
