“In 1991 Doorenweerd visited Normandy to see part of the ‘Atlantic Wall’ - a series of German bunkers on the coast of the European continent. He was particularly impressed by their exceptional location: at the back, embedded in the flat landscape; the front on the steep cliffs, fifty meters high, commanding a panoramic view of the sea. On the basis of this experience Doorenweerd developed his ‘typology of observation sites’. The objects originating from this system can be inserted into an existing situation, where they - as in the garden of the De Pont Museum - enhance the natural opportunities for perception.” (Wilma van Asseldonk, folder from Museum de Pont - Jeroen Doorenweerd’s Garden)
