Van Gogh, Ecomagination-Style

A cool mixing of art and science is happening in London. “GE and London’s National Gallery just unveiled an ecomaginative collaboration – an installation of Van Gogh’s famous A Wheatfield with Cypresses, made from over 8,000 living plants and on display on the western side of the National Gallery in Trafalgar Square. The green doesn’t stop there: GE also contributed Jenbacher cogeneration heat and power enginesthat will help reduce the Gallery’s carbon footprint.”

Above is the Van Gogh painting that inspired the project. After the jump are images of the living plants that make up the ecomagination version.
