De Streken / Compass Points

De Streken by visual artist Marc van Vliet moves on the Wadden Sea near Terschelling, driven by the power of the Moon. High and low tides give you two totally different experiences of this Terschelling tidal artwork, which you can only access by a 150-metre-long pedestrian bridge.

The artwork allows you to stop and become intensely aware of how the planet we live on revolves on its axis. At low tide, this is a quiet place on the sand flats and you look outward. At high tide, by contrast, you stand in the middle of the water and look inward.

De Streken by visual artist Marc van Vliet moves on the Wadden Sea near Terschelling, driven by the power of the Moon. High and low tides give you two totally different experiences of this Terschelling tidal artwork, which you can only access by a 150-metre-long pedestrian bridge.

The artwork allows you to stop and become intensely aware of how the planet we live on revolves on its axis. At low tide, this is a quiet place on the sand flats and you look outward. At high tide, by contrast, you stand in the middle of the water and look inward.

The artwork was previously on display at the 2021 Oerol Festival. At that time, nature decided to dismantle it a day early: a south-westerly storm and a spring tide damaged the construction. Learning from this, Oerol and Marc are working on a new version for 2022 that will be robust enough to brave nature for three whole months. De Streken will be opened in June, during the 2022 Oerol Festival on the Wadden island of Terschelling.

De Streken is a project by Sense of Place, that revitalises the area along the Wadden Sea coast by visualising the region’s unique qualities. Together with residents and the landscape, they tell the story of The North using visual art and design projects, portraying the history of the region and its inhabitants, the landscape and the future.
