Green Space

Parque Lage
The Parque Lage is a small park subapical the Corcovado hill. Once a private mansion you will find there now a school of fine arts ‘Escola de Artes Visuais’.
52,2 ha green space of 126.000 ha carioca space.

My Poem:
I taped my blue eyes with green space
My tense ears capture a filtered far away noise
Light pollution at night,
Brain confusion during daytime

I’m in the park – in a
But – where is the city?
The city is only visible on my face
I didn’t come to any place

I filled my black lungs with green air
My irritated skin raises every single blond hair
No solution at night,
extensive search during daytime

I’m in the park – in a city
But – where is the city?
The city is not displaced
I definitely need more open space

What is the need of green space in a city?
Do we communicate differently?
Do we go there to communicate or to digest?
