Recognisable objects like a wind rose, a mobile phone, a key, a pair of scissors, a safety pin, a ring and also words and poems were rolled into the still hot asphalt of the constructed footpath. They are 'modern fossils' that carry the past with them in a playful way. Hester Oerlemans collected these 'fossils' together with the residents and personnel of nursing home 't Laar and had them placed over the entire stretch of the two hundred meter long footpath, connecting the new and the old part of nursing home 't Laar. Oerlemans also had a line of light installed, made of transparent fiberglass. The line of light, that changes colour all the time, guides people “also at night“ to the other part of the nursing home.
