Disconnect between real actions and real-time becomes increasingly evident in our fast-paced, technologically saturated urban environments.  Selected artworks in ego|eco: environmental art for collective consciousness aim to confront traditional notions of “spectatorship,” promoting involvement over complacency through the inclusion of engaged public art practices and environmental art conveying a collective call to action. Juxtapositions of mediums, content, scale, forced perspectives and changes in cadence and flow will
encourage viewers to become both physically and psychologically aware of their own roles as “spectators”—symbolic of a greater need for action and social reform in the pursuit of sustainability.

We hope that viewers will be empowered to renegotiate their own ego (self) and eco (environmental) partnerships in and beyond their individual lives through sustainable practices, community involvement and strength of collective consciousness.

ego|eco: Environmental art for Collective Consciousness features work by the following artists, partnerships or collectives: Vaughn Bell, Terry Berlier, Nicole Dextras, Fallen Fruit, Helen and Newton Harrison, Jacci Den Hartog, Chris Jordan, Alison Moritsugu, Robert and Shana ParkeHarrison, Dmitri Siegel and Edward Morris, Esther Traugot and Andre Woodward.
