Double frame in steel that has the same dimensions as the former wall. As you pass the 37 meter long 'wall' the two layers shift making for an optical play.
The old brick wall since long was the boundery of the former chocolate factory Bensdorp collapsed a few years ago. In order to keep the recently restored building behind it well perceivable I made a transparant wall made of welded steel with an anthracite grey powdercoating.
