earthworks earth art or environmental art pretty darn loose There is no definite definition of this kind of art Refers to outdoor art that uses naturally occurring materials Christo and Jeanne Claude call themselves environmental artist because they create large sculpture projects in urban and rural settings The Running Fence Jeanne Claude died in 2009 Often spend years making their projects happen They call all their artwork projects not sculptures because it is not just the end work because it is temporary They make money by Claude business person and by Christo artist They self fund the work 24 miles long 18 feet high Made of nylon steel cables and poles Project lasted from 19721976 but was exhibited for two weeks in Sonoma and Mareen county Starts in the ocean and ends in the ocean Never took public or private money Christo grew up in Bulgaria behind the iron curtain He would get censored by the government for the kind of art he wanted to make When he was 21 he escaped Bulgaria without a visa It was very common to get shot Decided that they would never take money because they wanted the art for themselves without having any strings attached to the art Christo made a portrait of Jean Caude s mother Ranchers were highly supportive of the art 57 farmers gave permission Other two farmers took peer pressure to force them to change their minds Every worker was paid 90 miles of steel cable was used The Valley Curtain was also made by Jeanne Claude and Christo Was made between two Colorado mountain slopes in 1972 It was supposed to hang for two weeks but there was a 60 mph winds that made it necessary to be removed The project took 28 months to complete but was only up for 28 hours Environmental sculpture an art form intended to involve or encompass the

the perception of an interior space throughout he arrangement of objects and images chosen for their evocative transformative qualities Installations often incorporate mixed media and new media such as immersive virtual realities sound video etc Installations have been created in museums galleries public as well as private spaces lnstillation art you are surrounded by the art Found objects like Chairs by Tadashi Kawamata Alexander Wison Studio by Mark Dion Can be used as outside study source because it is not a study slide Study Slide by Mark Dion Sculpture park that was built on a site of a toxic waste dump in Seattle The sculpture by Mark Dion is called Neukom Vivarium 2006 Has to have staff inside of the sculpture because it is like going into an oxygen tank He found a huge tree from a forest and had it excavated and had it moved to the site It is about 60 feet long He has recreated the forest back to Seattle It is a very artificial environment It is about the process about the decay The tree supports a living bio system Neukom Vivarium is his only permanent artwork Study Slide by Wenda Gu The study slide is United Nations She has been working on a series of art There are 21 of this piece so far He was born in China and now lives in New York City He is trying to do is unite nations The art is called United Nations He used a lot of calligraphy in his art found art and hair and script from other languages His message of using cryptic script and hair to united people because he wanted to show that culture is often cryptic United Nations is the study slide Avante Garde used to be used by military who was part of the advanced guard Now it is used in the arts to refer to works or artists that are on the cutting edge Video of Mark Dion in Ecology 10202014 Loves the world of stuff Always going to flea market and junk stores He surrounds himself with junk so he can be inspired about the material A lot of things stay in the barn A lot of things are used in his sculptures He is trying to build a window into the past To get an idea of what people thought of the natural world at the time To get a sense of their prejudices at the time Starts with writings and drawings He made a piece on rats coming along to coconut island and killing all of the puffins He uses tar on the rats because tar was used as a punishment in the medieval ages He uses tar because of its association to intolerance He is an artist that is interested in ideas about nature and our relationship to the environment at this point of time Science functions as world view The tree is a hemlock that fell in 1996 He wanted to acknowledge the vast complexity over the vast ecosystem Real soil insects fungi plants birds nest and more from the area was used in the Neukom Vivarium The tree supports a living bio system within it The tree gives life after death When the tree falls half of their life is over Bringing an element that used to be from the area but now isn t back to the city They built a shelter for the tree so that the tree would be shielded from the sun So that the communities on the tree would not die The tree shows that when we destroy a natural system it is virtually impossible to get it back It is kind of a showroom classroom or laboratory He wanted Alice through the rabbit hole effect Wanted to highlight difficulty that nature can do Video of Wenda Gu When Chinese communist party came to power traditional script was changed to simplified He was inspired by cultural revolution creationdeconstruction of the language He wanted to be a Red Guard when he was a child He became a red guard and he simplified Chinese language and created meaningless script The meaning is that readable language gives you direction but unreadable language gives you freedom because it relies on imagination The United Nations art uses human hair He is called the hair artist The project has continued since 1993 He built a series using the local hair The polish one meant a lot because their was a huge Jewish cemetery Old women cried because it related to their history The Polish exhibition was closed after 24 hours Had similar responses in other places For Native Americans hair represents power For him art should go beyond art His art challenges traditions and convention 10202014 The work is part of a series he started in the nineties He started collecting hair from around the world For the United Nations installation he has hair from virtually every continent The hair is woven into texts But all the texts are illegible All of them are based off of real language but none of them makes sense This is based off a religious story from the bible Pretty much we can understand each other but it is in fragment and that we misinterpret other people a lot
