Something surreal happened in Seattle’s Westlake Park last week, when all trees suddenly turned blue. Don’t worry, it’s not some tree disease but a fresh landscaping project by Egypt-born and Melbourne-based sculpture artist Konstantin Dimopoulos. To raise awareness about how important trees are to our survival, Dimopoulos painted the trees with a “biologically safe pigmented water” on 2 April. According toWebUrbanist, the color will naturally degrade over the coming months.

'The Crisis in American Walking, How we got off the pedestrian path.' →

thegreenurbanist:

“Simply by going out for a walk, I had become a strange being, studied by engineers, inhabiting environments whose physical features are determined by a rulebook-enshrined average 3 foot-per-second walking speed, my rights codified by signs. (Why not just write: “Stop for People”?)”

Which is what walking in America has become: An act dwelling in the margins, an almost hidden narrative running beneath the main vehicular text. Indeed, the semantics of the term pedestrian would be a mere curiosity, but for one fact: America is a country that has forgotten how to walk. Witness, for example, the existence of “Everybody Walk!,” the “Campaign to Get America Walking” (one of a number of such initiatives). While its aims are entirely legitimate, its motives no doubt earnest, the idea that that we, this species that first hoisted itself into the world of bipedalism nearly 4 million years ago—for reasons that are still debated—should now need “walking tips,” have to make “walking plans” or use a “mobile app” to “discover” walking trails near us or build our “walking histories,” strikes me as a world-historical tragedy.”
