The Strange And Wonderful Work of Albert Geertjes
"About the strength of bamboo.
Ölandstone pierced by dozens of bamboo canes. The stone contains an upward shining lamp which illuminates the bamboo from the inside. At the top the shrubbery is crossed by again dozens of bamboo canes.
The shape of the lamp is continued in the light against the ceiling."
"Auvézère is a horizontal and a topographical arrangement of rough Scandinavian natural stone (a stone family). Each stone stands independently on 3 or 4 stainless steel legs. Heights are 20, 27 and 36 cm. Auvézère is suitable for indoors and outdoors. The arrangement of the stones is decided by me. For each group a floor plan is drawn and the stones are numbered. (I keep a photocopy of the arrangement in my files). "
