The history of the Netherlands is intertwined with water management. Centuries of projects to increase the amount of usable land through flood prevention and land reclamation have resulted in the perception by the Dutch that the Netherlands is, literally, a place of their own creation.
This project explores this perception through a satirical pop-up book. “Creation: Week 2” retells the Genesis story as a history of water management as if the Dutch took over after God finished.
