I am pleased to announce the publication of a new journal article in The Goose. This co-authored journal article with Aaron Ellison at the Harvard Forest is part of a special issue on environmental art and activism . Our intent with the article was to raise the question of whether ecological art must be action-oriented, not to answer the question in the affirmative or not. Our Hemlock Hospice exhibition was decidedly not action-oriented, whereas our Warming Warning piece suggested action. The impetus for our paper was a question from our colleagues at Harvard’s Project Zero as to whether providing a finite set of possible actions in Warming Warning (or any other ecological art with intent to provoke action) constrains people’s options for action (including non-action).
