Stichting Visual Legacy

A Resistible Force, When Man Meets the Sea

Zeeland Book Prize 2008

 

 

Pauline van Lynden breaks with a tradition of cold mathematical hardware descriptions. In this artistic book about coastal defence there is room for emotion. Her activities did not remain unnoticed: they motivated the province of Zeeland to put the groynes on their list of endangered cultural heritage.

Maasnieuws, January 2008

 

Foam-clad ridges, proud watchmen, a Dutch Stonehenge in the evening sun. Weathered wood covered with algae, barnacles, trapped pieces of netting. Pauline van Lynden shares with us her fascination for coastal works transformed by nature into works of art.
