Tadeusz Kalinowski Art Foundation have designed The Infinite Green, a green sculpture in Wroclaw, a city in Poland. The city participates in the competition for European Capital of Culture 2016 and ‘The Infinite Green’ project is part of the visual arts program.
Description by Kalinowski: The Infinite Green is an example of a „green sculpture” which is a combination of steel and wood construction, soil and vegetating plants. Sculpture may remind graphic symbol of infinity especially observed from point of bird view perspective. Viewer has an access into interior of the structure. Additional aspect of the sculpture may be a color of plants: many shades of green color appear while different species are planted on 110 m2 on 7 shelves-levels of a sculpture. They also blossom in a different time of a year. Only perennials in quantity of 100 have been applied here.
A skylight is located in the upper part of the structure providing the main source of light inside the structure during the day. Irrigation system is applied under each layer especially considering internal parts of a structure where shade plants are plated. Less dose of water is required by succulents and bigger quantity are needed by shade plants. Project is a part of a visual art program of European Capital of Culture Wroclaw 2016 and will be continued at least till fall 2017.
