URBAN GREEN by Rachel and Zlatko Ćosić

Nature provides food for our souls and inspires creativity. The visuals of Urban Green were captured at a unique place, the Citygarden in St. Louis. Motion details, still images, and paintings of nature emphasize the colorful and vibrant beauty of the urban space. The abstract music depicts urban life occurring around the park while imitating sounds of nature. The contrast between visuals and sounds, along with the poetic narration, calls attention to man’s impact on nature and the need to evaluate the human effects on the environment. Shelters like this green oasis that join nature, art and people, are essential. The video Urban Green is an artistic expression inspired by the beautiful place, a place important to the city and the people who care for it.
