Eco Art: art is life and life is embedded in nature.

Nina Czegledy (University of Toronto, Ontario College of Art and Design University)


Nature may be considered as the world of living organism and their environment; in a larger sense the shape of Nature can also be understood to include particular extents of space and time. The visual perspectives of Nature form a particular course that begins with the earliest historical depictions and might be currently expressed by a variety of crossdisciplinary contributions. The diverse perspectives form eclectic threads that today are frequently manifested within the Eco-Activist art movement. Several of the contemporary ecological art projects are grounded in explicit experiences and connections to specific spaces relevant to where the work is created. The local or international ecological labs, experimental urban gardens, projects on the migration of plants and creation of new species included here are all new models contributing to a speculative future culture.

Keywords: Ecological art, activism, sense of space
