Urban Greenery | Mosstika

When a while ago I searched for sustainable art the result was a wide array of  upcycling projects which to me were yes artistic but not that sustainable.

Today I am talking about Mosstika,  Elina Tokodi and József Vályi-Tóth, a NYC based collective, whose mission is ” to collide the worlds of art and nature, creating havens of unexpected greenery, within the colder harsher environment. Together we aim to give green guerrilla tactics a new twist by creating works meant to be touched, in turn aiming to touch the souls of all that pass by. We strive to call back to mind a more playful existence, returning man to nature, even among the barren patches of urban existence”

Edina is the founder of Mossitka. In her art, eco-minded, NY-based installation artist EDINA TOKODI, explores the diversity and intricate connections between nature and the inorganic world created by man. Her site-specific installations are inspired by Japanese Zen gardens and informed by the space’s environs, whether organic or man-made. Often sheathed in steel, glass, pavement and stone, the installations provide an unavoidable contrast to their surroundings. It is within this contrasting atmosphere, that her installations invite interaction, thus reclaiming the human bond with nature.

And to me, Mosstika’s projects can be defined as sustainable art projects.
