HVG defines itself as an economical and political journal, but it also deals with art and other cultural themes, altogether giving a comprehensive whole of the world's happenings from week to week. The concept of the park was devised on the basis of the character and role of the journal. In reflection the environment also sets up a connecting system of the different elements, where each one's role is defined and their relations are drawn up in the form of winding steel lines, as a whole resulting in an installation like park. The red steel lines, as influential lines, draw the elements into a connecting system visualizing the interrelation between them. Chairs lifted high in the air (unfortunately not built), serving as seats to connect to the system of the park or to the World Wide Web. The empty seat serves as the setting of a theme, otherwise when used by someone it is the starting point of the process of deformation. “The influence of elements evolves to form the deformation within the system, to give a comprehensive whole, a dynamic sight to sense the tension, which strain occurrences drawn up.”
