Henk Hofstra created an urban river in Drachten, The Netherlands. His “Blue Road” installation features 1000 meters of a blue painted road and the phrase ” Water is Life” written in eight-meter-high letters across it. The Blue Road is reminscent of the waterway that used to be where the road is now. A memorial to nature, it is an intriguing artistic gesture to reinforce the street as a space and place. Keep checking Google Earth to see if it will show up on the map.
