Climate Change-Themed Installation Art – A Brief Look
Installation art is a type of modern artistic sculpture, that presents the idea of using three-dimensional things in some sort of thought-provoking way. Art installations are mostly presented in art galleries, museums, but also sometimes in public spaces in cities as well as in nature. The “cross-over” of installation art from the gallery space into the outside world, or the natural world, could be considered inevitable, although this by no means to say the results have been predictable. Take for instance The “Spiral Jetty”, a well known installation art piece called an “earthwork”. Created by Robert Smithson in 1970, Spiral Jetty, at a glance, might be mistaken for a natural phenomenon, if you happened to fly over it in a helicopter. It was, however, intentionally formed, and is located in an area of Utah, still there to this day.
