Commissioned by City Council Deventer (NL) and ProRail.

Around 900 round metal shapes, in all different sizes are growing on 26 new metal fences around the bicycle storage and the bike ramp. This creates a trace through the whole new station area near the bike lane. Originally there was a river at this side, the round shapes refer to the waterbubbles . Some fences have bells in a bigger concentration,  sometimes the bars are growing in the air, or over the wall towards the ground, with the bells like flower buds growing over them.  An organism seems to overtake the fence. The fence is growing on several places, which makes it less of a barrier and more sculptural.
