Is it not simply a long term human experiment that incorporates the ecology
of the area into its architecture and living systems?
I can see how the buildings of Arcosanti can be considered ecological art, as
they have been constructed utilizing ecologically senstitive architecture.
But are we to consider the lives of the inhabitants as a work of art also?
And if we are, how can we categorize the Arcosanti experiment to compare it
to other types of art? Is it an installation with human components? Or
perhaps Arcosanti is an ongoing performance piece with no set ending.
