Pilot #3

Fisksätra Vibes

#fisksatravibes

Repetition, pattern, rhythm—the remarkable repetitions of existence and the invisible patters of the city. Stripes, dots and squares. Or why not flowered, leopard spotted and checkered? What is the identity of Fisksätra in the spirit of change?

Smart Kreativ Stad in collaboration with Konsten att skapa stad/Nacka kommun and Stena Fastigheter have engaged professional artists and creators from the film industry to create public art in Fisksätra.

The inhabitants of Fisksätra will elect a winner. The creators behind the proposals will engage in dialogue with the locals onsite during the work in order to include and accommodate their needs and wishes.

The artistic designs are intended as a unique aspect of the environment and architecture of Fisksätra and to enhance its identity in the spirit of change. A fountain in the square, a facade, a pedestrian overpass and an underpass will be transformed into meeting places that promote conversation and reflection for residents and visitors of all ages and cultures.

Fisksätra Vibes

Professional artists and creators from the film industry have been engaged to create public art in Fisksätra. In addition to these designs, two semipermanent works will be constructed in Fisksätra.

Place

The inhabitants of Fisksätra, Sweden’s most densely populated urban area, trace their origins from more than 125 nations. Their collective experience of growing up living in places around the world is representative of a cultural heritage, a global history that touches on politics, economics, social relations and culture.

Objective

The creators behind the proposals will engage in dialogue with the locals onsite during the work to include and accommodate their needs and wishes. For the pilot study, we will investigate whether there are alternative and better methods than are presently available to involve people in decision-making for the city. Which is the more democratic when faced with change: to give voice to those living in a residential area or to allow the experts to decide?
