ACKROYD & HARVEY: PAINTING WITH GRASS

Not instant grass, this time, but the actual real living stuff. I’d also like to stand in front of this face and stroke it, or mow it, or hell, even water it. The art is made by photosynthesis and grass seedlings, by a pair of artists called Ackroyd & Harvey,who according to Wiki have been responsible for ‘growing landmark buildings with seedling grass.

Flytower, London

The art is made by photosynthesis and grass seedlings, by artists Ackroyd & Harvey who have been responsible for growing landmark buildings with seedling grass. One of their most ambitious installations is this. FlyTower, on the National Theatre’s Lyttleton flytower. Here they worked directly on the exterior of one of London’s landmarks, turning the architectural icon  building in a massive living artwork. So incredible amazing and wonderful.
