Thank you Robert Fromme for the great info on cubism.
Ecology and Art discussion
We have an exhibit of Mel Chin's work in our Scottsdale Center for the
Arts. One of his works is a model of an ongoing project of his called
Revival Field, This represents a field planted with hyperaccumulator
plants. These "turnip looking"plants absorb heavy metal from contaminated
land. The plants can be harvested and the metal can be taken from them and
reused. (Any of you youngsters remember the smoos in Lil Abner?)
He believes that art is a catalytic force.....it's meant to present the
case, to allow things to happen.
A lot could happen with students studying his works.
