The prison village Veenhuizen, where laws, boundaries, codes of conduct and punishment are
a high priority, is an interesting environment for exploring freedom and movement. Visitors to the former reform colony can visit the sights on foot, but the distances can be daunting. Carri Harwig has come up with a specially designed series of transportation solutions inspired by the agricultural machines from Veenhuizen’s past. She has combined them with climbing frames, slides, swings and a dose of seductive cheerfulness. A playful contrast to the village’s history as a penal institution.
