News: A living understanding of nature
Exploring the space between contemporary art and ecological science to understand our natural world.
An enquiry into the possibility of a contemporary art practice to hone our sensory and intuitive capacity that we might gain an experiential understanding of our natural world. Picking up on Goethe’s plant studies and the desire of the Deep Ecology movement to value all life this short dissertation explores the ability of land art, environmental art, and ecological art to show us nature as it is so that we might experience it with our senses and contemplate our place within it. The focus of this enquiry is on plant growth and the soil that supports it. The document can be accessed at http://artdotearth.org/tina-scopa/ and the Artplantae website.
