TitleThe natural interaction of aquatic sediment Contact
»Mieke Roth DescriptionI am working on a series of large illustrations for a Dutch governmental institution that is in charge of the maintenance of the waterways in the west of the Netherlands. Over the next 10 years a large project is being conducted in which most of these waterways are deepened.
This detailed illustration is a part the second large illustration of the series, incorporated in several newsletters for the general public. The aim is to inform and to get the public involved in the decision process.
This specific illustration is explaining why, if a waterway is at the right depth, one shouldn't try to stop the accumulation of sediment at the bottom of the waterway. As are all the illustrations in this series, this is again a typical Dutch landscape.
