greenery and topiary

Posted by Anna Belleforte on April 16, 2018 at 3:45 PM

One of the things I wanted to look at in Budapest was the relationship between greenery and urbanism. There are many small parks within the urban grid here, but none of the spaces are very green yet. The grass is green but most trees are still bare. I’ll have to wait a bit for more exciting scenery in this regard. There are some dark evergreens and I’ve been photographing contained greenery. The concrete ‘pottery’ sort of have playful shapes but are also inconspicuous and often a bit sad (which isn’t to say they don’t speak to me). There are little triangles of greenery, or as the Dutch like to say, postage stamp gardens. Not sure anyone cares for them (other than the dogs and some birds). And there’s the rows of trees that line the main thoroughfares, those on Karoly krt being nicely pruned and bright green. Why is it that trees/bushes trimmed into ‘unnatural’ shapes are so appealing?   #BARTR #artistinresidence2018 #Budapestartresidency
