When taking the train through some drab, industrial part of town, wouldn’t it be nice to stare out the window to a spot of color?
Commuters in Berlin got that chance recently thanks to the graffiti crew TOY, who outfitted an S-Bahn train with a traveling flower garden. Hiding in a ravine like Wild West bandits about to storm the Union Pacific, they pounced when the train came to a stop and fixed about a dozen planters to its side. The train whizzed off, with people aboard chuckling and taking video of their new “lawn.”
Now it’s just a matter of what will remove them first: The authorities, or the constant blasting of 25 mph wind as the flower-train makes its rounds.
