1. Ecoart definition:[edit]

Ecological Art, or eco-art, or Ecoart, is an art practice that embraces an ethic of social justice in both its content and form/materials. Artists considered to be working within this field subscribe generally to one or more of the following principles[1]:

• Attention on the web of interrelationships in our environment—to the physical, biological, cultural, political, and historical aspects of ecological systems.
• Create works that employ natural materials, or engage with environmental forces such as wind, water, or sunlight.
• Reclaim, restore, and remediate damaged environments.
• Inform the public about ecological dynamics and the environmental problems we face.
• Re-envision ecological relationships, creatively proposing new possibilities for co-existence, sustainability, and healing.

Ecoart is created to inspire caring and respect, stimulate dialogue, and encourage the long-term flourishing of the social and natural environments in which we live. It commonly manifests as socially engaged, activist, community-based restorative or interventionist art[2].
