Mosstika: Living Wall

Succulent Living Wall in Green Spaces, Brooklyn 2009Mosstika is the studio of Edina Tokodi, a hungarian artist living and working in Brooklyn, New York who
creates artwork from plants. As the name suggests Mosstika works with the green plant material known as moss. For her artwork, Tokodi uses the growing material to create silhouettes and other designs that she often installs on the street. Her latest project moves in a new direction, integrating a wood frame and irrigation system to create a living wall. The project was installed in Brooklyn and features a large wooden frame that is layered over a field of green succulent plants. The effect creates an image of a woman when viewed from afar. Up close, you can see the plant material, which is ideal for growing on a vertical surface.
