Under the Conversations about teaching Contemporary Ecological
Art, we came across the question: "How does the process of contemporary
ecological art differ from the process of traditional studio art?"
We believe that the process of contemporary ecological art is a
process that aside from taking to account the decision-making process of
any work of art of art such as the medium used, the style, etc. has to
compromise not only with personal expectations but with the expectations
of others as well. More preparation has to go in when dealing with ecological art in the
sense that deciding where to place the work, how big it is, what materials
it uses, how people will react to it and the long or short term effects of
the weather in which it is placed.
