At the Apeldoorn station, across a large glass wall, a sand drift is simulated, controlled by LEDs. The drifting sand can form beautiful, ever-changing patterns. Sometimes the wind blows fiercely, and at other times, it calms down, and the sand lies still for a while. Occasionally, a gentle breeze stirs up the sand lightly, causing minimal changes in the landscape’s patterns. On a larger scale, the landscape changes as the sand dunes gradually shift through drifting. Sometimes, the sand piles up on one side, a scene supported by the concave shape of the square.
