If you are interested in examples of eco public art, or you have undertaken an eco public art project (temporary or permanent) you should seriously consider adding it to this important new database. It’s already got a wealth of interesting projects. There is information on how to submit on the website (and it’s peer reviewed so the quality is good). Thanks to Ian Garrett and the CPSA for highlighting this.
It’s part of the wider Curating Cities research programme,
Curating Cities is a 5-year research project that examines how the arts can generate environmentally beneficial behavioural change and influence the development of green infrastructure in urban environments. Founded on the principle of using art and design to curate–literally, to care for–public space, the project places creative disciplines at the heart of the sustainability agenda. In doing so it advances an ambitious research plan for aesthetic practice, proposing ‘curating’ as a method for working through the practical concerns of sustainable living.
