Arne Quinze takes matters into his own hands with a new public art installation, The Sequence, designed to promote urban interaction by connecting the Flemish Parliament with the House of Flemish Representatives in Brussels. If you can't change government from within, why not do a makeover on the outside? The wood and concrete installation, officially opening November 16 and projected to remain for at least five years, works as a prompt for communication as people walk through it. The physical connection between the government neighbours is also a symbolic one that is meant to reflect Quinze's philosophy. As he says, "The Sequence bridges the communication gap between people, and generates movement in the city. I want to reconnect people and let them interact with each other like they did in the past on squares. At least people talked to each other back then."
