> 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. On the contrary, when dealing with
studio art, the decision-making process is more personalized. Even if it is
for public display as it would be in a gallery, the pressure isn't that
great because it's temporary and not permanent.
