"During the spring of 2020, an "intelligent lockdown" was applied in the Netherlands due to corona. The result was that the streets in the cities were completely deserted, while in nature you could walk over people.
With the help of our imaginations I visited the most beautiful woods and forests with my children. Such as the forest of "Ronja the Robbers Daughter", by Astrid Lindgren. Thanks to her beautiful descriptions, about childish astonishment and wonder about what nature has to offer, we were able to experience all seasons in this beautiful forest in just a few weeks.
Someone later commented on the artworks that resulted from this: - The mysterious forest of human noise
A beautiful description, because no forest in the Netherlands is free from human noise. Especially not during the corona lockdown, when the forests and parks were the most crowded places in the Netherlands. " - Elise Eekhout
