[ISEA2012] Artist Talk: Anthony Anella – LAND ETHICS AND AESTHETICS

Artist Statement

Today more than ever before, there is a need to rediscover a more graceful way of interacting with the earth. Beauty, for me, is distinguished by this grace. It begins with a certain humility and a respectful attention to Nature, and ends with a sense of the infinite wonder of it all. I am interested in promoting a sense of beauty based on this wonder. This talk will explore the power of art to change how humans perceive their ethical relationship with Nature by focusing on several recent projects designed to inspire taking better care of our planet.
