ecoPULSE Art, 2021
Mosses and Marshes documents a collaborative social ecology project led by environmental artists Andrew Howe (UK) and Kim V. Goldsmith (Australia) in two Ramsar-listed wetlands in the UK and Australia, over a three year period from 2019-2021. It introduces and expands on themes that manifested in a series of artworks and online presentations under the title of Mosses and Marshes, as well as bringing together different voices from within the project team and wetland communities. The artists have raised questions and invited debate about the future of the wetland landscapes and ecologies through a series of provocations in their writings and essays from exhibition curators, scientists, land managers, and cultural specialists.
