Course No. SCU225/325/425 Credits: 3.0
This class is concerned with art as a process of exploration, discovery and experimentation, within the broad contextual conditions of Ecology. In this course, art is considered as presenting an ideological position in which one qualifies his/her relationship(s) both separated from and within the natural world. This course examines both the historic and contemporary landscape of Art and the Environment as conditions of cultural interaction and production with a consideration for the broader issues that have emerged since the 1960s and 1970s through activism. Existing at the intersection of art, science, technology and ecology, Environmental Art often functions to inform and/or interpret natural conditions and the processes associated with both "non-human" and "human-made" constructions. It may also educate us about environmental issues and concerns. This course introduces and provides a context for this area of interdisciplinary exchange and artist production by examining areas commonly known as Land Art, Eco Art, Environmental Art, Art and Science, ArtSci, Bio-Art and Art and Technology. Open to all students.
