The Piccardthofplas is inhabited by vast numbers of birds. In order to prevent them from being drawn to the headlights of cars, Noud de Wolf was commissioned to design a light screen that would not deprive residents of the opposite houses their view of the water. After extensive research, De Wolf designed a 200-metre-long screen divided into 96 plates that capture the lights of the cars. The plates have been placed in such a way that a waving movement is created. Thanks to the shape, earthen colour and the gravel between the plates, the work functions as a natural filter between the tranquillity of the water and the dynamics of city life.
