Performance artist Karoline H Larsen explains: “I have developed Collective Strings as a participatory creative way for people to be physically drawing and sculpting the public space in a free movement, tracking colored strings in traces across public space and between the city structures. Collective Strings began with my own need to move and express myself in new ways cheating tricking my body and mind with a roll of string in order to begin playing in public spaces. I wanted to stop taking the same but efficient route from A to B and to find forgotten pathways and new traces in my mind and body as I moved through the city. I was curious to experience myself from a new angle, to open new impulses inside me, and feel something different. I was adamant that the experimental character of art was necessary for change and personal development.” (Larsen 2008)

Performancekunstner Karoline H Larsen fortæller: “Jeg har udviklet Collective Strings som en måde for folk til fysisk at tegne og forme det offentlige rum i en fri bevægelighed, ved at trække farvede spor med snor på tværs imellem bystrukturer. Collective Strings begyndte med mit eget behov for at bevæge og udtrykke mig på nye måder. At drille min krop og sind ved at dreje mit hoved med en rulle snor for at begynde at lege i det offentlige rum. Jeg ønskede at stoppe med at tage det samme, men effektive rute fra A til B og finde glemte stier og nye spor i mit sind og krop, imens jeg bevægede mig gennem byen. Jeg var nysgerrig efter at opleve mig selv fra en ny vinkel, at åbne nye impulser inde i mig, og føle noget andet. Jeg var overbevist om at den eksperimentelle karakter af kunst var nødvendig for forandring og personlig udvikling. ” (Larsen 2008)
