Monday - A memorial tree for the victims of chemical weapons

In Den Haag, just behind the OPCW*'s building, there's a memorial to all the victims of chemical weapons.

In a small dunal landscape next to a maple tree, a pole covered in solar panels powers the webcam hosted on its top, recording imagines of life passing by underneath it. Frames from the footage are then uploaded on a specially created website.

On the pavement, a poem in several languages engraved in granite pays homage to the dead.
