Central Park

    Parks are an essential part of a "good city", they beautify the city and provide a place for residents to get close to nature. People walk, gather, date there, and homeless people choose to spend their nights.

    In addition to the extensive human involvement required in the initial design and construction of the park, maintenance is also required. The "normalized" beauty of the park is achieved through direct intervention in the environment and natural objects. Natural growth in the city seems to be a secret act that needs to escape human rights and control, and is always at risk of interference. Lawns and vegetation are regularly mowed, non-conforming branches are sawed off, and weeds are trampled and pulled from the cracks in the floor tiles. Natural forms of seed dispersal with the wind and carriers are impeded by the urban fabric and replaced by nursery stock, planted on time and in quantity in planned areas.

    The Central Park is a work that discusses the human factor in regulating natural objects in the city. The planting areas are planned according to species and color, with the color determining the effect on the surrounding area and the species determining the height and flowering period of the plants. The plants grow within limits and will be replaced at the end of the flowering period, and the same planned areas will be replaced with other plants. The only natural objects available to the flowers in the beds are rain, insects, and even the soil and nutrients that depend on them are selected and blended. All procedures are designed to ensure the presentation, just as all legal procedures are designed to maintain stability, and nature is trained in that law that defines the flowerbeds.
