Additional examples? What is Environmental Art? Your Definitions and responses Artists on Environmental Art

Anu Kiiskinen -Combines sculpture, environmental art and landscape architecture. -Primarily concerned with formation of meaning and of content as a result of the interaction between environment and artwork. -Opposes aesthetic qualities of an 'autonomous object and instead seeks arts communicative, functional and social aspects.

The Artist as Activist Ketchum, Bristol Bay, Alaska (mines, gas and oil drilling?) Environmental art is like a growing relationship that connects art

with the earth; the definition itself grows as artists find their own ways to explore and depict nature. Ketchum initially portrayed the landscape in its inherent beauty but eventually chose to take what he described as an overtly politically active stance in his work.

Robert Smithson, Spiral Jetty, created April 1970 Progress has not followed a straight ascending line, but a spiral with rhythms of progress and retrogression, of evolution and dissolution. - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe flatrock.org.nz/topics/intellect_and_entertain/pink_water_white_salt_black_rock.htm

Nadalian: I have always been interested in making bridges. Bridges between ancient symbols and new media. Bridges between folk art and intellectual art. I want to take intellectual art to the areas where

ordinary people live. On the other hand, I am interested in bringing the existing values from the culture of folk art to the art centers where intellectual art is practiced. I love to take an issue which is local and make it global. Today environmental crises can be seen in our villages and also in global village. The same can be said about bridges between Iranian and American environmentalists
