CREED ISLAND Mapping of how the Islands are defined today, their borders and barriers.
MAPPING OF THE CONNECTIONS BETWEEN DISCOVERED ISLANDS AND THE NEXUS FLOW IN INDRE ARNA // The discovered islands are connected to the nexus space of roads and pathways. The meil road leads to Oslo and Europe. Most of them have one or two entry points and the easiest entrypoints are by car. Big part of the islands are covered with parking and their boarders are often trees and vegetation that are situated there by people. // All of the discovered islands are connected to water, if not the sea then the river that ďŹ‚ows down the valley. They are planted in the richest soil in Arna. // Rhythms to or between the islands are fast because people mostly use cars, bus or train. Inside the islands the rhythms slow down and are then mostly inside buildings, that makes the sign of life invisible to the outside. The sunlight is inferior because of high mountains and that might me a big factor. But the position and structure of buildings are not helping this condition.
The connection to the sea from the Mini-Mall magnet. The MiniMall has no connection to the fjord.
TRAVELING THROUGH THE ISLANDS
// Movement through and between the Islands over borders and barriers. The rhythm trough and inside the Mini-Mall Island is during the day and from Monday to Saturday while the stores are open. People go to this place to shop and maybe eat, there is no outdoor program in this Island other than parking. // Movement through and between the Islands over borders and barriers where barriers are also inside the Interconnection Island. The rhythm trough this Island by train is in fixed intervals that change from daytime to nighttime and from the weekdays to weekend. There is tremendous amount of people that travel trough this Island over one year from Bergen to Oslo or Voss. // Movement through and between the Islands over borders and barriers where there is no connection to the river scape in this Creed Island. The rhythm is slow in this Island and this Island is really fixes in itâ€™s place. It functions as a compass for people to locate themselves in the landscape in Arna. Section location.

The railway system in Murnamnsk works as a huges barrier between the people of Murmansk and the harbor. Murmansk has the biggest port in Russia and the industry by the water is enormous.
