Living Art by The Urban Landscape Group

February 12, 2009

The Budapest, Hungary based Urban Landscape Group was awarded first prize for their outdoor art creation located in the campus garden of the University of West Hungary in Sopron. The Art Jury described the team’s project as an artwork novelty closing a yet unfilled gap in contemporary art.

‘Living Art’ is installation. ‘Living Art’ is street furniture. ‘Living Art’ is half a statue, half an ever changing living garden.

The statue-plants, representing the initials of the University, will turn into a living spectacle by changing colors with the seasons day after day. Elements of the furniture set – which is made of exposed concrete ‘ribbons’ – will cast shadow from the shady statue-plants as many vivid negatives. The special outdoor set will serve as a place to hang around and relax for those who long for a place to read, study or chat.
