Three years ago, known French artist Daniel Buren installed an intriguing set of colorful wind socks on the shores of Den Haan, Belgium. A hundred giant posts bearing wind socks that are likened to striped candies were set for Beaufort04, the fourth edition of the Triennial of Contemporary art by the Sea. The wind socks follow the wind direction that causes it to be positioned horizontally. In this particular artwork, Daniel Buren says he wanted to inspire the illusion of a forest on the beach. A refreshing installation that added vivid colors by the sea.
