About The Project

Colossal floating blocks of concrete, as living monoliths, migrate through an untouched landscape, without context, without reference, lost in space and time, on the move to something bigger to fall in place.

Drifters - a collaboration between Sil van der Woerd and Amsterdam based Studio Drift - is a companion work to the installation Drifter and displays how basic and rough human systems are, in contrast to the natural.

The work can be seen from the perspective of whether or not the individual can escape from the collective.
