Aagerstoun Mary JoAagerstoun Mary Jo

Biography: I am an art historian by training, and my primary area of interest is activism and art. For the last 5 years I have been developing EcoArt South Florida, a 501 c 3 nonprofit that seeks to catalyze the development of the region as a center for EcoArt practice. EcoArt South Florida utilizes a specific definition of EcoArt. For us, to be EcoArt, the activity or project must be based in the best science, actively engage community, not simply as observers, and improve a specific environmental problem. I am active in the city where I reside in sustainability matters and have established a grass roots neighborhood "green group" seeking to create urban forest streetscapes and EcoArt community gardens. I am especially concerned about water and nuclear and fossil fuel power issues in South Florida and in encouraging local artists to consider EcoArt as a new creative direction.

Bolender KarinBolender Karin

Biography: Karin Bolender's interdisciplinary life/art practice roots in rural landscapes (all the faunal, floral, and mineral forms that inhabit them) and human acts of metaphor, memory, and imagination. Grounded in both poetics and performance-art traditions, Bolender's work explores the seams between our human selves and other beings, especially other domestic species, and seeks the deepest roots of our common histories, passions, and needs. Many of her collaborative projects involve journeys through the rural American South with two American Spotted she-Asses, Aliass and Passenger, and often in the company of other artists, animals, musicians, and passers-by; these journeys include Little Pilgrim of Carcassonne (2002), The Dead-Car Crossing (2004), the "Can We Sleep in your Barn Tonight?" MYSTERY TOUR (2006), and the ongoing She-Haw Transhumance series. Her site-specific series known as The Dive Rodeo playfully subverts the dominance paradigms and breakneck speeds of traditional rodeo events like Steer-Wrestling and Team-Roping, in search of slower and more contemplative ways of knowing other beings. Bolender runs the Rural Alchemy Workshop (R.A.W.), founded in the pine and poplar woods of Carnesville, Georgia in 2008 and relocated to the golden light and shadows of the Northern Sacramento Valley in 2011.

Carruthers BethCarruthers Beth

Biography: A Canadian artist-philosopher, independent curator and consultant in Arts, Culture and Sustainability, my research interests include phenomenology, theories of embodiment, ethics and aesthetics in human-world relations, ontology, and the role of art and technology in ontological/cultural change. My primary research interests are in ... I want to say "communicating sustainability", but it goes further than that. Really, it's about how we might EMBODY the knowledge and qualities that will make sustainable practice a deeply desired state, and eventually, the norm of being in the world. I would say these interests include theories of embodiment - especially visual embodiment - immersive systems, and especially the role of aesthetic engagement in shifting a problematic dualist ontology. By way of process, my intent is to develop content, interfaces and processes that ask participants to engage in emotional and in-depth ways, so they become very invested in outcomes, and translate this investment, and learnings, to their everyday lives. As social anthropologist Tim Ingold tells us, “information is not knowledge, nor do we become any more knowledgeable through its accumulation. Our knowledgeability consists, rather, in the capacity to situate such information, and understand its meaning, within the context of a direct, perceptual engagement..." In 1997 I co-founded the first Canadian arts-science collaborative organization addressing habitat and sustainability in urban centres. In 2006 I was engaged by the Canadian Commission for UNESCO to create a research report on arts and sustainability – Considering Arts In Ecology: Mapping the Terrain of Contemporary Ecoart Practice and Collaboration. As an academic with a focus on ethics, ontology, and the role of the aesthetic in engendering environmental values, I write, publish, and lecture internationally.

Creates MarleneCreates Marlene

Biography: My work as an environmental artist and poet has been an exploration of the relationship between human experience, memory, language and the land, and the impact they have on each other. Beginning in the 1970s with a series of temporary photo-landworks titled Paper, Stones and Water (a low-impact response to large-scale earthworks), my theoretical and studio research interests have focused on photography, relational aesthetics, ecology, poetry, and place. I live in rural Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada, in a 6-acre/2.4-hectare patch of boreal forest. Since moving here in 2002, my principal artistic venture has been to pay close attention to this one particular place. The work about and at this site, which I have called The Boreal Poetry Garden, takes various forms, including photography, video-poems, and on-site poetry walks with readings of site-specific poems, often in collaboration with other invited nature poets, natural historians from various disciplines (botany, geology, wildlife), and musicians responding to the acoustic qualities and ambient sounds of the site — all to bring attention to and appreciation for the boreal forest ecosystem. In addition to my personal work, I have been commissioned to make public signworks about layers of human and natural history of specific sites and, since 2001, I’ve facilitated place-based and environmental art projects with well over 2,000 school children and community members, focusing on the local. Recently I’ve been thinking these projects may be some of my greatest achievements, even though they’re not published or known by a larger public outside of the participants..

Cutler-Shaw JoyceCutler-Shaw Joyce

Biography:

Joyce Cutler-Shaw is an artist of intermedia, including drawings, installations, public commissions and artist’s books. Drawing is her primary language from two-dimensional pen and ink works on paper to their sculptural translations. Cutler-Shaw’s subjects are of the natural world, of human nature and the built environment within nature. Recent works include Of Water and the River: Meditations on the Rio Grande, a two-year project for a New Mexico State University exhibition that explored the complex issues of water in the Southwest. Other recent permanent installations were titled Lightlines and Birds in Flight for a Carnegie Library rebuild in East San Jose, California, which included light-edge images of tree leaves and a calligraphy of native wild birds of that region. A previous public sculpture was for the Mission Valley Library in San Diego, which had as its theme “the river.” The San Diego River, though within viewing distance, was hidden from sight. The sculpture paid homage to river bank trees. Titled The Sycamore Leaf Canopy, it was awarded the San Diego AIA 2002 Design Award. It is composed of eight structural columns, each with arching, cut steel panels. It has light projected leaf shadows cast upon the barrel roof to bring the outdoors in.

Davis CameronDavis Cameron
Cameron Davis’ paintings, installations, and community art projects, explore issues of the environment and living consciously at this Eaarth-time. Davis’ work seeks to understand and reflect the role consciousness and the new sciences play in forming cultural frameworks that reweave relational and participatory ecological perspectives. Her work uses imagery taken from various sources: Hindu/yogic practices, Buddhism, Earth based traditions, and the new sciences, paired with abstraction that corresponds to the felt and sensed. In her work memory, desires, beliefs, and intuition, flirt, refer, but never fully touch down for long into references of the material (macro-invertebrate, bone, root system, flower, blackbird, honeybee), in an effort to address the interpenetration and permeable nature of the inner and outer. Davis teaches with the University of Vermont’s Departments of Art and Art History and the Environmental Program. www.camidavis.com cdavis@uvm.edu

DiRosa SamanthaDiRosa Samantha

Biography: Hovering between poetic interpretation and objective documentation, my hybrid-media installations explore a diversity of issues including: our societal urge to collect, objectify, control, and sentimentalize experience; our persistent need to mediate our relationship to the present moment and to the natural environment; subtle violence (to the human body, the earth body), the loss we experience due to our waning connection to the earth; and our striving for oneness and belong. Appropriated images from scientific texts, cast silver bubble wands paired with found insects, haikus derived from vintage medical terminology study cards, and samples of sediment juxtaposed with abstract landscapes have been just a few vehicles for transmission. More recently, my work is extending into social practice and the public realm.

Laramée Eve AndréeLaramée Eve Andrée

Biography: Eve Andree Laramee is an interdisciplinary artist, researcher and activist working at the confluence of art and science, specializing in the environmental and health impacts of Cold War atomic legacy sites. Her interest in the culture of science has enabled collaborations with physicists, hydrologists, geologists, biogeographers, and ecologists. Recent projects deal with climate change, sustainability, and the environmental health impacts of our nuclear legacy. In 1980 Laramée began zeroing-in on radioactive issues and atomic legacy sites where uranium mining/milling, plutonium production for nuclear weapons and the nuclear energy industry have contaminated surface water and land with radioactive isotopes. Radioactive contamination is invisible; visual art allows for multiple modes of visualizing the invisible through images and direct action through social-sculpture interventions deployed directly into communities raise environmental awareness, and activate community participation in remediation efforts. Laramee divides her time between Brooklyn, NY, Santa Fe, NM and Baltimore, MD, where she is Professor of Interdisciplinary Sculpture and Performance Art History at the Maryland Institute College of Art. Her art has been exhibited throughout the United States, England, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, France, Holland, Israel, China, Japan, Poland and the Czech Republic. Her work is included in the collections of the MacArthur Foundation, the Museum of Modern Art, New York, the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, The Fogg Art Museum of Harvard University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and in numerous other public and private collections.

Merriman ConstanceMerriman Constance

Biography: I am an artist and educator.I am currently teaching for Carnegie Mellon University's School of Architecture, The Carnegie Museum of Art and Pennsylvania Council on the Arts. My artistic practice is a combination of personal studio work and multifaceted community based projects. These 2 art processes are thematically united and function to support each other. The community based projects act to address a problem. The topic of the projects are issues of social and environmental justice and often focus on the repercussions of the extraction of natural resources. Frequently the projects extend over long periods of time and involve working with community members, scientists and activists. I often collaborate with artist Thomas Merriman on projects which have included Great Whale, MTR, Hays Woods Project and the Community Forest Project. While I am working on the community projects, I create individual works in the studio which act to clarify and expand my understanding of the community projects.

Olynyk PatriciaOlynyk Patricia

Biography: Patricia Olynyk investigates the often-tenuous relationships between human culture, science and the environment. Her work frequently calls upon viewers to expand their awareness of the worlds they inhabit-whether those worlds are their own bodies or the spaces that surround them. In her latest series, Probe she utilizes a vast inventory of prosthetic devices and medical instruments collected for their historical value in order to comment on the human desire to fetishize and even anthropomorphize objects used to supplement or probe the human body. Through her photographs, Olynyk draws together both the historical and modern desire to control and manipulate our corporeal selves. In her series, Sensing Terrains, an installation created for the National Academy of Sciences in Washington, D.C., she juxtaposes scanning electron micrographs of sensory organs with photographs of Japanese gardens designed to "tickle the senses." Specimens range from human corneas (representing sight) and wild mouse taste buds and olfactory epithelia (representing taste and smell) to guinea pig cochlea (representing sound) and drosophila feet (representing touch). Freed from the confines of scale and context, sensory organs and garden details become hybrid landscapes where viewers can travel through tastebuds and nasal epithelial cells into a scramble of roots, reminiscent of complex vascular systems. Some of the images have been printed in a dramatic chiaroscuro black and white, while others are tinted in electric orange and blood red. In the center of the installation, suspended above the viewer, a large petal-like construction of printed images on silk hangs like a diaphanous, floating sea anemone. The sensory experience is intensified by an interactive and evocative soundscape. Triggered at various locations throughout her installations, sounds drawn from recordings made by Olynyk during two research related trips to Japan evoke blood coursing through the body, a heartbeat, and the trancelike hum of Buddhist chants. Patricia Olynyk is the Director of the Graduate School of Art and the Florence and Frank Bush Professor of Art in the Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts at Washington University in St. Louis, Saint Louis, Missouri. She completed her undergraduate work at the Alberta College of Art and Design in Canada and received her MFA with Distinction from the California College of the Arts. In addition, she was a Monbusho Scholar and Tokyu Foundation Research Scholar at Kyoto Seika University in Japan for four years. Her work has been shown internationally in numerous exhibitions including at the National Academy of Sciences in Washington D.C.; the Brooklyn Museum of Art; Denise Bibro Gallery in New York; Galleria Grafica in Tokyo; Toby Moss Gallery in Los Angeles; the American University in Cairo; Galerie Michele Broutta in Paris; the Saitama Modern Art Museum in Japan; and at Museo del Corso in Rome.

van Boeckel Janvan Boeckel Jan

Biography: Jan van Boeckel is a Dutch anthropologist, visual artist, art teacher and filmmaker. One of Jan's areas of interest and concern are the worldviews and environmental philosophies of indigenous peoples. Together with filmmaking group ReRun Productions, he produced a series of documentaries on this subject, as well as films on philosophers such as Jacques Ellul and Arne Naess, who provide a critical analysis of the Western way of life. These films include, among others: The Earth is Crying (1987), It's Killing the Clouds (1992), The Betrayal by Technology (1992), and The Call of the Mountain (1997). Jan has lived for several years in Hällefors, in the forests of central Sweden, where he was an art teacher to both children and adults, and consultant on international cultural projects. He established the Cloudberry Dreams network with partners in Latvia, England, Netherlands, Norway and Sweden. The mission of this partnership is to share ideas and to explore new ways to interpret landscapes through art and creativity. Another project he took part in conceptualizing is called Clearings in the Forest, which focuses on the cultural and mythical significance of open spaces in the woodlands. Between 2004 and 2006, Jan has worked as Head of Communications at the Netherlands Centre for Indigenous Peoples in Amsterdam. Currently Jan van Boeckel is research fellow at Aalto University in Helsinki, where he is focusing on the added value of art practice in the context of nature and environmental education. Inspired by indigenous peoples' cultures, his own engagement in art and art teaching practices, and his experiences of living close to wilderness areas of Sweden, Jan's interest has moved to art as a means to connect to what David Abram aptly called 'the more-than-human-world'. Since 2007, Jan is member of the ecoart network. His research supervisors are professor Juha Varto (TaiK, Helsinki) and associate professor Edvin Østergaard (Norwegian University of Life Sciences, Ås). One of Jan's research interests is the tension between trying to 'open the senses' whilst coping with the current ecological crisis. An issue all the more pressing when working with children. Jan is also on ResearchGate
