This powerpoint was for a lecture on this subject at the invitation of Juan Carlos Espinosa, Assistant Dean of the Honors College, Florida International University given on March 18 2014 at the university. I am grateful especially to colleagues of the EcoArt Dialogue who have influenced my thinking about EcoArt over the years and including Sam Bower, Aviva Rahmani, Jackie Brookner, Hildegard Kurt, Shelley Sacks, Betsy Damon, Amy Lipton and Sue Spaid, Tricia Watts and many more. Specifically on the transdisciplinarity theme of this talk I am extremely grateful for introduction to the theories of Basarab Nicolescu by Sacha Kagan, David Haley and Hans Dieleman. Please see the EcoArt South Florida website for more information on the organization, our mission and goals: http://ecoartsofla.org and our Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/EASoFla.

  1. EcoArt and Transdisciplinarity presentation by Mary Jo Aagerstoun, Ph.D. President, EcoArt South Florida Tuesday, March 18, 2014
  2. Is EcoArt Transdisciplinary??
  3. Diagram courtesy of Sam Bower, greenmuseum.org
  4. EcoArt is not a discipline. It is a practice. So is environmental art, which is a larger category of practice. Art is the discipline. The other practices inside the environmental art bubble are also practices They can be practices each one individually And They can be incorporated into EcoArt, together or separately In many combinations But EcoArt cannot be absorbed into them
  5. …so what makes EcoArt EcoArt?
  6. EcoArt is both a practice of environmental art, AND… can subsume into itself other environmental art practices… …and… All are part of the DISCIPLINE of ART …and… …EcoArt ALSO brings INTO it, PROCESSES of the DISCIPLINES of… ENGINEERING and SCIENCE
  7. How we will proceed •Nicolescu’s definitions •Roots of EcoArt •Branches of EcoArt •Fruit of EcoArt (Florida) •Revisit Nicolescu
  8. Basarab Nicolescu 1942- Honorary theoretical physicist at the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS), Laboratoire de Physique Nucléaire et de Hautes Énergies, Université Pierre et Marie Curie, Paris. He is also a Professor at the Babeş-Bolyai University, Cluj- Napoca, Romania and Docteur ès-Sciences Physiques (PhD), 1972, Université Pierre et Marie Curie, Paris. He was appointed Professor Extraordinary at Stellenbosch University, South Africa for the period 1 January 2011 to 31 December 2013 and was elected as Stellenbosch Institute for Advanced Study (STIAS) Fellow in 2011. For introducing me to Nicolescu’s thinking, thanks to Sacha Kagan Toward Global (Environ)Mental Change: Transformative Art and Cultures of Sustainability. Berlin: Heinrich Boell Stiftung, 2012, David Haley ‘Art, Ecology and Reality: the Potential for Transdisciplinarity,’ paper, 5th Mediterranean Congress of Aesthetics, and Hans Dieleman, “Transdisciplinary Artful Doing in Spaces of Experimentation and Imagination” Transdisciplinary Journal of Engineering & Science The ATLAS (December, 2012)
  9. Nicolescu’s definitions from: Transdisciplinarity: Theory and Practice. New Jersey: Hampton Press Inc., 2008 • ‘Multidisciplinarity concerns studying … [a] topic not in just one discipline but in several at the same time.’ (Nicolescu 2008, pp. 2) • ‘Interdisciplinarity… concerns the transfer of methods from one discipline to another.’ (Nicolescu 2008, pp. 2) • ‘…transdisciplinarity concerns that which is at once between the disciplines, across the different disciplines, and beyond all disciplines.’ (Nicolescu 2008, pp. 2)
