The Earth is your canvas

If art is all about the message, then this surely is an important message. Not only that, but a message well communicated.

This global art project was co-ordinated by Earth 350 in various places around the world, and brings attention to climate change whilst created an exciting exhibition using the Earth’s surface as a canvas. Yes, these pieces are a little large to fit into your average gallery! They have been seen by the world mostly through being photographed from the air.

But is it art, or does it just represent a few months of meticulous planning?

For me, it is art, because when I look at these pieces I feel a sense of something larger than me – of something greater than the sum of its parts.

Another thing I like about these pieces is that they won’t last forever. There won’t be restorers working on them in 300 years time, and it would be pretty hard to keep them out of the sunlight! It reminds us of the transient nature of life, and of the increased power something possesses when we know it won’t be around forever – a characteristic that makes it even more poignant for the message it is conveying.
