  • There are blue painted trees all over downtown Denver. After doing some research, I love the story and concept behind it ... ♥️🌱
.
.
In April 2017, in a 16-block area of Downtown Denver, international sculpture and conceptual artist Konstantin Dimopoulos painted 150 trees bright blue. Why blue? Because blue trees do not exist in nature and Dimopoulos aimed to bring awareness to global deforestation and the relationship people have to trees in their everyday environments.
.
.
“I want people to notice the trees,” Dimopoulos explained, “to see them as more than just wallpaper in their lives. Change can be threatening. Changing a local environment through color is both disconcerting and even uncomfortable.”
.
.
But this change started fading away after a few months (due to weather), unlike the deforestation he hoped to educate people about. The blue paint was biologically-safe, water-based and non-permanent. And though it didn’t leave a permanent impact on its environment, Dimopoulos believed it could permanently influence how people perceive their daily surroundings. In becoming aware of such things, people may be more encouraged to incite change rather than shy away from it.

  • Eu realmente adorei esse parque. Vou contar a história deles para vocês, mais antes disso já marquem os coleguinhas para conhecerem também 🔍🥺.

Uma instalação tem chamado atenção nas ruas de Sydney, na Austrália. De repente, os troncos das árvores do parque Pirrama Park acordaram azuis. Mas não se assuste, não se trata de nenhuma praga que tomou conta da mata! Pelo contrário. As cores integram a intervenção The Blue Trees, do artista nascido no Egito e que mora na Nova Zelândia, Konstantin Dimopoulos. O profissional objetiva, justamente, chamar a atenção do público para a presença das árvores no dia a dia da vida na cidade, numa tentativa de fazer com que as pessoas olhem mais para as matas e as preservem. “Esta ação é importante não apenas para destacar as questões ecológicas, como o ecocídio de nossas florestas, mas também para efetuar uma transformação na psique das pessoas, elevando nossa consciência social”, diz Konstantin.

As árvores foram pintadas com uma tinta que não as prejudica e que sai com a chuva. A intervenção começou na última sexta-feira, dia 4,  se estende até dia 11 de março e o público pode fotografar a cidade e compartilhar tudo usando a hashtag #bluetrees.

  • The trees might look magical at first glance, but they were painted blue to raise awareness of deforestation #bluetrees
