Wooden Globe: Collection failed

The fragments of wood sent in by staff and students of Wageningen University & Research for an artwork for the Orion building will not be used.

The collection campaign produced too little material, says artist Diederick Kraaijeveld. He had counted on getting at least 100 pieces of used wood but only got 25. So Kraaijeveld is going to make the globe with his own wood. The fragments that were sent in will be used later in other work. The globe, measuring six metres across, will be hung in Orion on 31 October, according to the plans.
