Word on the street

The outcome of the COP15 talks did not impress anyone. But the streets brought hope, as people from all corners of the world came to show support. There were more events and happenings than the media could handle, and much of it you would have to see for yourself, or not at all.

The neon sign extended over the Assistens Cemetery, is part of a scattered street exhibition, by danish artist Astrid Gjesing. 7 recycled and engraved gravestones was laid into the pavement, on different locations in Copenhagen. The message reads "the earth bears your mark", and we get it in french, english, chinese, arab, spanish, urdu and danish. We really do.
