Living Graffiti

I was excited to find this article about living graffiti on the inhabitat website. What a novel idea. Artist Edina Tokodi is taking standard graffiti to a whole new level...

Creating living installations made entirely of moss, Tokodi is interested in the tie between man and nature and how people (specifically city dwellers) feel a disconnect with the environment. A large part of her art simply involves watching how passers by react to the living pieces. Do they stop? Do they walk right by? Do they dismantle the pieces or begin to care for them?

This idea of art as a living thing, having a life of its own and ever changing really intrigues me. Adding to the environment's beauty and bringing nature to places where natural beauty is sparse...what a creative idea!
