This report aims to investigate the pertinence of public art in people’s experiences by studying the newly designed urban trail ARKENWALK in Ishøj, a suburb located in Sjælland, Denmark. The analysis addresses how the premises of the red curved lamps placed by the Danish designer Jeppe Hein, are part of the intentions of improving the experience of walking from the Ishøj train station towards the Art Museum Arken. Because places and consumer experiences are always scripted through design by its creators, we want to illustrate how experiences are richly various and unpredictable.
