I am honored to be included in Linda Weintraub’s new book TO LIFE! Eco Art In Pursuit of a Sustainable Planet (UC Press). The book has chapters on each of the artists/collectives; her chapter on my work explores Oil Standard and The Real Costs. Weintraub has created an entire website that includes useful teaching guides for use in the classroom. From the description:
To Life! Eco Art in Pursuit of a Sustainable Planet documents the burgeoning eco art movement from A to Z, presenting a panorama of artistic responses to environmental concerns, from Ant Farm’s anti-consumer antics in the 1970s to Marina Zurkow’s 2007 animation that anticipates the havoc wreaked upon the planet by global warming. This text is the first international survey of twentieth and twenty-first-century artists who are transforming the global challenges facing humanity and the Earth’s diverse living systems. Their pioneering explorations are situated at today’s cultural, scientific, economic, spiritual, and ethical frontiers. The text guides students of art, design, environmental studies, and interdisciplinary studies to integrate environmental awareness, responsibility, and activism into their professional and personal lives.
