mosstika is the studio of edina tokodi a hungarian artist living and working in brooklyn, new york who creates artwork from plants. as the name suggests mosstika works with the green plant material known as moss. for her artwork, tokodi uses the growing material to create silhouettes and other designs that she often installs on the street. her latest project moves in a new direction, integrating a wood frame and irrigation system to create a living wall. the project was installed in brooklyn earlier this year and features a large wooden frame that is layered over a field of green succulent plants. the effect creates an image of a woman when viewed from afar. up close, you can see the plant material, which is ideal for growing on a vertical surface. while this piece was installed outdoors, perhaps we will someday have living art inside our homes.
