Latest work by Karel Burssens and Jeroen Verrecht (also known as 88888) features a 40′ x 4′ hole in a pond surrounding the Horst medieval castle in Belgium. The structure keeps its interior dry making it possible to be lit up during the night to mark its abnormal presence even more. The project was unveiled at the Horst Art and Music Festival and will be on display until October 11.
