4029 Sandbench Bulldozer, 2003

Centre Pompidou Paris

How does one make an outdoor bench that, like its surroundings, grows and changes colour, shape and position during the seasons?

A shovel with the shape of a bench is attached to a bulldozer, oftentimes used to maintain the beach and hoist the dunes. The sand on the seaside is then transformed into into a bench. The Sandbench is sown in with grass seed, thus decorated with natural ornaments. De Sandbench being built up from natural ingredients itself, is not only a bench within its surroundings, it has become its own environment.
