Greenys in Nisantasi, a part if Istanbul, are the basis of `Greeny on the Tour´.

Having been invited by the government of Sisli to create a Greeny-Project at Nisantasi in Istanbul, Yutta Saftien developed the idea of streetlamp-Greenys in the public space of Abdi Ipekci Cad in Nisantasi.
In April 2008 58 streetlamps, which are located in and in the surrounding of this street, were greened up with a long shiny Greeny-tendril with leaves and blossoms.
Everybody who wanted could start to knit or to crochet with the offered material beside (wool and crochet-hooks) and could let the Greenys grow this way. The Greenys caused people to stop from running, take their time and start to talk to each others.
The Greenys of Nisantasi were a peaceful, intercultural action.

Yutta Saftien, as the artist, was always around the Nisantasi-Greenys and people could discuss the work with her. Participants could give their names for the participants-list (-> `Greeny Participants´).

After the Greeny-days of Nisantasi Yutta and her team desided to send the Greenys on tour in several cities to disseminate the message of the Bosporus-Greeny-Project to many people on different places. These Greenys are called `Greeny on the Tour´.

The grown tendrils on these Greenys will later be taken of these Greenys and will be fixed together to one long tendril, which then will form one part of the big Bosporus-Greeny, which hopefully will grow in 2010 over the Bosporus-Bridge `Istanbul Bogazici Köprüsü´ in Istanbul
