Presentation Title:

  • Environmental Aesthetics and Nature Immersion Art Practices




  • IIn this paper I describe 3 different immersive field trips in nature resulting artworks and environmental appreciation. The first, it is an art residence I undergone in Norway, Sweden and Lithuania. The main subject of the call for this residency was “Cartographies of everyday life on the sea.” The second, it is an art residency I organized on a sailing boat with the theme “Experience the Sea.” The third, it is an artwork derived from different trips on nature. On the first, I focus on the process and intentions of being on that location. On the second, the focus is on the experience. And on the third, I talk about the outcome of different immersions in nature performed on recent years. They all have in common the urge– as an artist – to be in nature and produce something out of it. It can be a report, a note, a video, or a photograph, anything that connects me to nature, which can extend the feeling even when I’m not there anymore.
