Beach art

Schiermonnikoog island, The Netherlands

Two of three giant wooden 'grand pianos' on the island's Northsea beach
by Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman, symbolizing the connection between music, nature and the sea. He
His project is called 'Signpost 5'. He wrote this:
"The pianos refer to stranded cargo and ditto whales. To be salvaged or saved; in any case to be
wondered and surprised about. To one person itís of value beyond measure, the other looks upon it
as being just derelict wood. Islanders come and gather, to admire, to salvage or to save and, thus,
see their beach again in a whole new perspective."
