    Brachen Siedlung was a mobile festival which was held at three locations (Nijmegen NL, Duisburg DE, Arnhem NL). It was a part of Ruhr area as Cultural Capital 2010.
     
    With Ruhr in our minds, we asked ourselves the following questions.
     
    How is nature presented to man? 
    Can a coal landscape covered with snow go along for the Alps?
    What effect does the Industrial Revolution have on nature?
    Did mankind, through its evolution, make a next nature? 
    Can a landscape also be mobile these days? 
     
    With this in mind another day created a visual essay, in collaboration with Joris Budel, about human made industrial landscapes. To give the whole project a stronger identity, another day created a custom made typeface, inspired by the Ruhr industrial area.
     
    The biggest part of the project was a mobile installation. We transformed an oldschool Nissan Prairie into a mobile factory. The mobile factory produced a lot of smoke (co2 friendly) that was hanging as a cloud over the whole festival. There was a room inside the installation filled with smoke and mysterious music created by Jorg (Lomechanik) where you saw a handmade silhouette of a mountain neon sign .
