2. Conception of "Greenys on Parkingmeters", Berlin, Hamburg, Bremen... 2004/2005...

Beside the aspects of communication and cooperation between individual people, the Greenys at parking meters in certain areas of several cities also initiate a discussion about our relationship to the dimension of time... Parking-meters signify: "Time is money!" But can time be payed? Can time be bought? How do we use our time? May we interrupt our timetable and stop at a Greeny? Is crocheting at it wasted time? Who decides what is useful or what does make sense and what is unuseful or senseless? When Yutta Saftien has set free her Greenys at parking-meters in a city, she walks around as a passer-by, watching the peoples reaction, collecting their comments in a notebook, making photos and a video-documentation. Some people send her their comments about the action afterwards via e-mail. They find the address on a postcard that is offered together with wool and crochet-hook in the flower-pot. Yutta Saftien wants to publish the documentation and the comments in a book later, after more of these actions have been realized. Realized actions until today: Berlin - 2004, Hamburg - 2004, Berlin - 2005, Bremen - 2005 Because of the Bosporus-Greeny project in Istanbul 2010 the project of the greenys on parking meters will be continued later.
