Slow Park

Chaco Kato

The Slow Park installation is set for everyone who comes and passes by the Public Art Park in the heart of the city of Melbourne. A number of hammock and Noren-screen will be installed on-site, providing a small oasis space. Please feel free to have a small nap, meditate, read a book or just be hikikomori for a while. There will be numerous plants above the hammock which will make you happy and peaceful even more. The artist will be there sometime to keep working on site. Join for the creation as well!
