Regeneration of Grønmo Landfill – Norwegian Rhapsody
July 2011, Oslo, Norway  -  HONORABLE MENTION

I died on January 2nd, 2015. By that time I had read about GrønmoPark. I thought it was the most beautiful idea to deal with death and I fell in love with the thought of becoming part of the landscape. I spoke with my family and my beloved about it and they all seemed to recognize the beauty and the abstraction of it. We then visited Grønmo on a trip to Norway and we walked together on the grounds I would one day belong to.
