Urban Forest.

I went to Copenhagen today. And when I stepped off the metro at Kongens Nytorv…I stepped into a dance installation. Wonderful, beautiful, wondrous, beautious, captivating. Check it out here

It truly felt like stepping into another world.

The experience piece, Urban Forest, rethinks the modern urban environment as a frame. Through the installation The Reframing Initiative challenges what we take for granted and provokes shifts in rationale.

The experience installation rethinks the metro’s urban space – through video projections, light and sound the metro station is transformed in to an organic space with a calm atmosphere. You let go of your thoughts and let yourself be absorbed by the present – a break in your stressful everyday life.

Urban Forest exists as an experience installation at Kgs. Nytorv Metro Station August 17 – 22, 2010.

The Reframing Initiative consists of Patrick Coard and Cecile Waagner Falkenström.
