Ultra-Groen (Ultra-Green in English) is a group of two artists from Denmark. Morten Leck Plesner and Christian Elovara Dinesen use public spaces to play with passersby and their notion of the public versus private distinction. Ultra-Groen says that what they do is about "simple ideas that say a lot with very few words."

Ultra-Groen's latest endeavor is the Trailerpark festival located in Copenhagen, Denmark. Expect more of the same reactionary pieces from the brilliant duo.

Implications - Though art can often feel frivolous or meaningless, some amazing art works add meaning and beauty to the world in a way that enriches our daily lives. Ultra-Groen doesn't necessarily see their art this way, or intend for it to convey this to viewers.
