The visual art of Grønningen does not consist of eye-catching or colourful elements. Instead, it consists of a pure addition to the finished design, carried out in collaboration with SLA.
The artist seeks to complete the design by adding a series of subtle physical structures and points of gathering. She calls this series the Meta Layer as it refers back to the dialogue process by “translating” three main conclusions into physical form; That Grønningen is a public area, but also a surface of touch between its neighbours. That the possibility of co-ownership of the park is an essential condition for a local publicness. The park should thus be adapted to support activities between neighbours to the park.
The Meta Layer consists of physical structures that are deliberately vague and fragmentary in their forms. They are not designed for one type of use – but for many. Each individual will be able to inhabit them in his or her way. Thus, they give meaning only when used.
Above, all appendices are marked in blue colour on the map of the future park. Below, they are briefly introduced as three categories – footpaths, meeting points and local tales.
