A sculpture by Street Earth CPH made out of clay, sand, eelgrass and horse manure.
Its a material experiment. Rammed clay with eelgrass as reinforcement is plastered with clay, eelgrass and horse manure. Clay pigments were then massaged into the plaster before totally dry.
Inspiration from site : Inderhavnsbroen, a `stupid stupid bridge´. The bridge had a lot of problems throughout the building process. You can read more about it in an article from Arch Daily-
It was built out of a concept where a big part of its functionality was not thought through . It has nearly cost the municipality half a billion to build it and there are still problems with it, now, 4 years later.
The sharp angles are working against the natural movement of people and bicycles.
Collecting local material. Seaweed / Eelgrass from Amager strand, Horse manure from Christianias riding school and Clay from a nearby building-site
