environmental art (<visual works by material or technique>, visual works (works), ... Visual and Verbal Communication (hierarchy name))

 

Note: Contemporary works of art, usually outdoors and on a grand scale, that surround or involve the participation of the viewer and that especially exploit or incorporate aspects of their sites. For such works that specifically manipulate the land itself, use "earthworks (sculpture)." For indoor installations that create surroundings that can be entered by the viewer, use "environments (sculpture)." For sculpture that is designed to be placed outdoors but is not especially site-specific, use "outdoor sculpture." For art that utilizes natural physical forces, biological organisms and processes, and performance to illustrate, question, and explain ecological and environmental issues, use "ecological art."

Additional Notes:
Dutch ..... 20e-eeuwse kunstwerken, meestal in de open lucht en op grote schaal, die de toeschouwer omringen of erbij betrekken, en vooral de natuurlijke kenmerken van de locatie benutten. Voor soortgelijke werken die het land zelf gebruiken wordt 'earthworks' gebruikt. Voor inrichtingen binnenshuis waar de toeschouwer naar binnen kan gaan wordt 'environments' gebruikt. Voor beeldhouwwerken die zijn ontworpen om buiten te worden geplaatst maar niet locatie-gebonden zijn, gebruik 'openluchtsculpturen'. Voor kunstwerken die natuurlijke fysische krachten, biologische organismen en processen benutten en het medium performance om ecologische en milieu-kwesties te illustreren, ter discussie te stellen en uit te leggen, gebruik 'ecologische kunst'. 
Spanish ..... Úsese para obras de arte del siglo XX, usualmente ubicadas en exteriores y a gran escala, que rodean o involucran la participación del observador y que explotan o incorporan sobre todo aspectos de su emplazamiento.

Para instalaciones interiores que crean ambientes en donde el observador puede ingresar, use "environment (escultura)". Para esculturas que están diseñadas para ser ubicada en extererior pero que no comprende específicamente a una obra site-specific, use "escultura en exterior". Para arte que utiliza las fuerzas físicas naturales, organismos biológicos y procesos, y la performance para ilustrar, questionar y explicar asuntos ecológicos y ambientales, use "arte ecológico".
