The idea of the Greenys:

The Greenys from the german artist Yutta Saftien are artificial plants made out of green material, mainly wool, crocheted by hand.

After the first stitches up to a small plant have been done by Yutta in her studio, they are placed in the public space. Then passers by can take the crochet hook and the wool, which is placed beside and let the Greeny grow, crocheting by themselves.
Everybody can let the Greenys grow, whatever his culture, nationality, religion, gender or age is. And at the Greenys, may be, people start to talk to each other.

The Bosporus - Greeny:

The Bosporus - Greeny should grow over the Bosporus-Bridge (Istanbul Bogazici Köprüsü) between the Asien and the European side of Istanbul. It will have two strings, each growing from one shore of the Bosporus to the middle of the bridge.

Also this Greeny is an artificial hand-crocheted plant with skin, ranks and leafs, mainly made out of wool. The growth of the Bosporus-Greeny has started as a smnall `plant´ in the studio of Yutta Saftien in 2005. In the meanwhile people all over the world followed her and send their own Greeny pieces to the team in Istanbul, formed by Pepeevents by Derya San and to Yutta Saftien in Hamburg.
Several long peices have been created by workshops in Vienna, New York, Hamburg, Amsterdam etc. as well as at street installations in Istanbul/Nisantasi and North Cyprus.

The vision of Yutta Saftien is, that everybody, whatever his culture, nationality, religion, gender or age is, can become a part of the project. She or he only needs to crochet a piece for the Greeny, which then will be fixed at the plant and helps the Greeny growing. Finally at a public working platform the two strings of the Greeny, each growing from one side of the bridge, will be connected at the middle of the bridge.

This project should become a picture of peaceful local and international cooperation and communication between all kinds of human individuals.
