Blue-Trees-Konstantin-Dimopolous-LEAD

“These bizarre blue trees by Konstantin Dimopoulos may look like they came straight out of Avatar, but they were actually painted using an environmentally-safe water-based pigment as part of an art installation in Canada. Originally displayed at the 2011 Vancouver Biennale, the Blue Trees project was extended by 4Culture and various government departments in Seattle on the Burke-Gillman Trail in Kenmore in Westlake, WA. But why paint the trees blue? Dimopoulos says that in doing so, he asks viewers to question how thoroughly we have destroyed various forests around the world.”
