Can art change the climate?
With this question, seventeen international artists were sent into the Waterloopbos, an almost exotic forest in the Netherlands. In this former open air laboratory, where for decades hydraulic engineers dealt with water in a technical way, Kielzog organization asks for artist imagination.

The artist have built their artwork in the ruins of the scale models of the former Hydrodynamic Laboratory.
