What is ecological video-art? by Nohra Corredor

"Ecological Video Art addresses the most recent changes in perception, occurring in a very short period of time due to the revolutionary man-made digital Space-Time/Sound being created with new technologies. Ecological Video Art is the art form exploring the permanent and ephemeral relationships between human beings and the natural/mind processes of Space-Time and Sound in particular and has emerged as an independent and autonomous New Media art form reflecting the technological and ecological dynamics of the 21st Century. One of the functions of Ecological Art is to ensure that the viewer of an ecological artwork, by suspension of disbelief, shares a semblance of nature and nature processes created by the intervention of the artist with all his/her technical and artistic skills. The introduction of virtual reality, of worlds created in or by computers, to our present real world, may impact momentarily our visual/hearing perceptions of what is real or what is virtual."(2006)
