‘Monument voor Grondverzet’ is a temporary monument as a forerunner for the development of the area. First thing is to renew the roads and slowly there will arise new apartment buildings and the industrial area is to be pushed further, out of the city centre of Alkmaar. The old road was put on a pile. Some of these pieces have been partly altered by pouring surfaces of epoxy resin on them. This creates a shimmering as you drive past the work.
The debris was stacked into a platform, which can also be seen as an arena which you can enter and climb on. In the middle is a small dry and black pond made of a mixture of tar and epoxy resin. With time, this structure is cracking slowly by sun, humidity and human interventions.
