Zipper Park

The urban environment today changes in a direction that is totally dominated by economy, efficiency and accessibility. Through these attributes a strategy is implemented to sweep the cities clean from everything that is deemed uneconomically, inefficient and that affects the accessibility. The city planners have, it seems, forgotten what the green spaces does to people who live in the cities. The excessive use of hard materials in the cities creates an unforgiving environment.


The work  raises the awareness of the underlying mother nature, that we seem to have forgotten, in a semi-humoristic way by letting her break through a zipper that cant hold her in place. The protruding green area within each installation is somewhat raised in the centre as to visually say that she doesn’t want to be contained and especially not locked away by concrete-politics.


Seven installations creates a circle around the city and connects the existing green spaces together.
