Living green art
Not all of us are green thumbs and have this urge to start prodding away at the garden planting seeds and watching things grow. I admit i could never see myself with a wheelbarrow and soil covered. Since the start of ULTRA we came across guerilla gardening, illicit cultivation they call it. It seems that this guerilla movement has gotten quite a following with people everywhere getting their seedbombs on at every little plot in sight. And yes we are encouraging some bombing.

One iconic building that flashes into my mind when one thinks of a place to start with a project such as this is the Pekeliling flats. Wikipedia mentions a “mini jungle” but why did they not keep it as that? I’ve always imagined bursts of colour or even messages as the green forms over the tops of the flats.

The highline an old train track running through NYC was converted into an oasis above the concrete jungle where people could sit and take in a ray of sun or a breather from beneath the hustle and bustle below. Friends of the highline include Ethan Hawke and Edward Norton who campaigned for the parks existence for public use.

We would like to see people taking charge of our city and making use of the abundance of sun and spaces with green art, living walls for your office or even moss graffiti? At the end of the day, you are using the most natural of materials. Or even contribute to WE ARE ULTRA popup coming soon to Publika.
‘We Are ULTRA’ are a collective of thinkers and makers grounded in sustainability. We have created art installations, fashion, organic skincare, retail concepts and always like to grow.
