In February 2015, some New York State residents, angered by the abuse of eminent domain in service to fossil fuel corporations enlisted eco-artist Aviva Rahmani to create the Blued Trees Symphony-installation. The Blued Trees Film documents the June 21, 2015 launch of an innovative strategy to contest fossil fuel proliferation. Additional participants simultaneously participated internationally as a Greek Chorus. The full symphony will launch in the Fall, and use copyright law to contest the condemnation of private property for fossil fuel profiteers.
