I styled some pictures for the danish stationery brand Kartotek. If you like paper and beautiful notebooks Kartotek is the place to go.
In Denmark we just had a parliamentary election, and got a new liberal government. One of the new government’s goals is to build a new highway tunnel, running under Copenhagen’s harbor. The tunnel will emerge at two of my absolute favorite green areas in Copenhagen; Kløvermarken, a huge green area with mainly soccer fields and also where my allotment garden is located. The other place is Amager Fælled, a wonderful big wilderness of bushes trees, flowers and wild animals about the size of Central Park in New York. I have spent so many wonderful moments with my kids, my husband, my friends and myself in the green surroundings of Amager Fælled. I am deeply concerned with the fact that these to two green breathing spaces are in imminent danger of being turned into construction sites for many years, and after that, being destroyed by roaring cars and trucks. I simply can’t believe that some people would choose to invest in infrastructure for fossil fueled noisy vehicles. The argument from the liberal government is of course money. More jobs, more investments, less time wasted bla bla bla… Why not discuss the pros and cons from a different perspective than just money? What about quality of life for the people living in the city? Copenhagen is famous for being one of the most livable cities in the world. The harbor tunnel project would greatly diminish this reputation and destroy two beautiful places that is very dear. I really hope it isn’t going to happen. XO Ida
