Worringer Platz in Düsseldorf is an island. Pedestrians, scooter riders, skaters, bicycles, motorists, streetcars and trucks all flow around this place in different ways. A collection of strange miniature-like structures on the square shift the scale and form a counter-world. The trees surrounding the square appear to create space. At almost all times of the day there is a hustle and bustle that swirls in different directions. For some, the square is also home. A public room in the open air.


Worringer Platz is being given a carpet of rolled turf. The carpet ornamentation results from the movements on the square and changes daily. On day one, it is a soft, green surface that appears freshly washed. Gradually, tracks appear, running lines appear where the grass has been flattened. Over a total of seven days, the surface changes from day to day. It may become dry and dusty and increasingly yellowish. Perhaps the edges are disintegrating or holes are appearing. For a moment in seven days, the soft surface of the grass documents what is happening in the public room outside.
