Eclipse ERAR-AT
Cary Peppermint and Leila Christine Nadir founded EcoArtTech as their collaborative platform for digital environmental art in 2005. "Eclipse" is a user driven, artwork-application that alters and corrupts networked photostreams of United States national and state parks based on real-time Air Quality Index (particle pollution data). "ERAR-AT (Environmental Risk Assessment Rover)" is a mobile, solar- and GPS-powered, networked video installation that will accumulate and aggregate the environmental threats and risks faced by the population in its immediate location. ERAR-AT performs the difficulty of perceiving, evaluating, and understanding risk scenarios and presents an assessment of its given locale by producing a unique fourteen-tiered threat level embedded live within video projections onto local natural and architectural surfaces. EcoArtTech has created many projects and exhibits connecting environmental concerns with new technologies.

    Rebecca Davis
Eco Sculpture    Photo Collage
In Davis' words, "My work reflects my anxiety about the pollution produced by our synthetic culture. The effect pollution has on the earth's environment is the conceptual core of my sculpture and photo collage. In my work, I combine elements of wilderness and the products of human culture." She carves miniature glaciers out of marble and pours oozing black rubber on them. These sculptures get reused in her photo collages, placed as icebergs floating in sea.

    Nele Azevedo
Melting Men    More Melting Men photos    More photos     GreenMuze Interview
Azevedo is a Brazilian artist who has exhibited her installation "Minimum Monument" in cities all over the world. While her intention is to critique monuments, putting in their place small ephemeral ice sculptures of many common men, the Melting Men project has been followed by environmentalists. As a public installation of tiny melting figures, it seems to speak clearly about the dangers of climate change.

    Joshua Allen Harris
Inflating Polar Bears    More Photos
Harris turns garbage bags into sculptures that live over subway air vents and inflate when a train goes by. His polar bear scupltures, which slowly fall when the air that inflated them is gone, are poignant reminders of the peril these bears are in due to climate change.

    Janey Hunt
Resolutions Exchange     Escape     Conscience Offsets
As an artist and researcher Hunt works in the field of climate change and environmental behaviour. Her current work explores the tension between our recognition of need, but then our inability to change our own behaviour. Posing herself as a typical well-intentioned green aspirant, and provoked by her own admissions of failure, she uses conversation as both method and outcome, to encourage a sharing of experience and knowledge, frustration and achievement.

    Andrea Polli
90 Degrees South     Cloud Car     Hello Weather

Andrea Polli is interested in global systems, the real time interconnectivity of these systems, and the effect of these systems on individuals. She currently works in collaboration with atmospheric scientists to develop systems for understanding storm and climate information through sound.

    Adriane Colburn
Arctic Ice     Arctic Suns

In her most recent works, Colburn references systems that we utilize in everyday life, but are largely removed from our consciousness. Sprawling organisms such as urban sewer and water systems and the global network of pipes and refineries that develop and transport oil have been fodder for an investigation of the complex yet base, and at times grotesque, constructs that support modern society.

    Rebecca Potts
Glacial Melt
Rebecca Potts is interested in human interaction with land: how we both alter and are altered by the land. Her current work searches for solutions and understanding of climate change. It specifically focuses on water's role in global warming: the melting of glaciers, sea-level rise, and the quickening loss of this blue-gold.

Ice Under Fire     Warming Winds, Rising Tides     Pushing the Boundaries of Life

Gary Braasch is an environmental photographer who for 25 years has reported on natural history in many parts of the world. Since 1999, he has been working on a project titled "World View of Global Warming" in which he photographs areas on all continents that illustrate documented results of climate change and repeats historic photographs to show the changes. He works with environmental groups, scientists and editors to educate the public, urging government and corporate sectors to more directly address the reality of climate change.
