Phenomenology and artistic praxis:an application to marine communication


Quon, JW, Phenomenology and artistic praxis:an application to marine communication, Leonardo, 38, (3) pp. 185-191. ISSN 0024-094X (2005) [Refereed Article]

DOI: doi:10.1162/0024094054028994


The author's ecologically informed art praxis can be traced back to her experiences while deep-diving off Tasmania's eastern coast. These provided a plethora of aesthetic sensations, but also images of the appalling degradation wrought upon the marine environment by humans. Her art focuses upon this juxtaposition between natural harmony and ecological dysfunction. The artist/author outlines her views on artistic communication generally and, specifically, on the role of art as ecological communication and discusses the significance of presenting her multimedia and sculptural installations in "general" public contexts. She discusses three of her artworks and possible future projects. ©2005 ISAST.
