Mossenger: graffiti made of moss

I bet Anna Garforth has more fun making graffiti than anybody else; certainly she has more impressive results. For her Mossenger project (Mossenger part one, Mossenger part two) Anna made letters out of moss, then affixed them to a brick wall. She sprays the text with water to keep it alive. includes Anna’s explanation:

Being interested in public art and ecology, it led me to thinking about sustainable grafitti. I collected a common moss that grows well on brick walls and glued it to the wall using a mixture of natural (bio active) yoghurt and sugar.

I blogged about moss graffiti years ago, but that was the paint-on method. I suspect that Anna’s lettercutting approach allows for much more precision.
