Secret Operation 610 – Rietveld Landscape

Secret Operation _ fishing for smiles _2

After I came across the post about Secret Operation 610 on Design Boom’s blog, I have literally become obsessed with the unconventional work of Dutch design and research studio Rietveld Landscape.

Half sculpture and half research center, the Secret Operation 610 art installation of Rietveld Landscape and Studio Havermans is a moving object that crawls through the landscape of a former cold war military base during the Vrede van Utrecht 2013 festival (the peace of Utrecht). It moves at an excruciatingly slow pace allowing its visitor to experience the area and the history of the military airbase in new ways. Everything about this aircraft is so science fiction – it’s wings that descend to the ground, it’s futuristic interiors and the weaponry context.

While you’re at it, also look through Rietveld Landscape’s other projects .
