The Ecology of Art

Relevant notes from the journal 'The Ecology of Art':

  • 'When nature takes over' - sculpture at the Kreeger Museum by Dayla Luttwak

  • focused on plant roots

  • seeks to accentuate and embellish the elements of nature that invaded the site

  • producing art but also freezing potential ecological succession

  • the artist and the scientist walked the same ground, viewed the same objects, but arrived at different destinations

  • nature-based art reflects the differing artistic world views that emerge in urban versus rural settings

  • "What if a structure was purposely created to be both a work of art and an ecological experiments?"
