8 days to totality in North America

Eclipse week is finally here! Over sixty members have contributed works to Transmissions, the online exhibition + printed zines, and pop-up event in Austin, Texas. Most of the works are now viewable under Exhibits in the menu bar on our website. see below

This year in order to develop a compendium of artists, scientists, designers, architects and writers for our 2025 online interactive + printed book, we have launched a call titled SOILS TURN. This will give us a full year to create the ultimate soil practitioners directory. The aim is to be inclusive for all who apply, so we invite you to share your work reimagining soils. see below

Printed copies of The New Geologic Epoch will arrive in April (apologies, paper problems) and will be shipped to four continents. This is an absolutely gorgeous book with incredible artworks and thoughtful text. We are still taking pre-orders and will do a second printing. Check out the updated digital interactive edition here.

For our monthly Zoom Dialogues in April we will hold the sixth Geologic Dialogues with artists who make time-based and performative works. see below

As we pass through a short period of darkness in the middle of the day next week, let's be present with the fact that we humans and our non-human relatives are a part of a larger cosmic system that supports life here on Turtle Island.

DEADLINE May 18, 2024

"…human beings are not in a separate compost pile. We are humus, not Homo, not anthropos; we are compost, not posthuman." Donna Haraway

Haraway’s call to reimagine human as humus reflects a recent 'soils turn' in the social sciences, humanities and arts that seeks to diversify mainstream soil knowledge and empower people to reconnect with soils. Heeding this call, SOILS TURN will be the 2025 ecoartspace annual online interactive + printed book, which will be realized as a compendium and directory of artists, scientists, designers, architects and writers who engage with soils.

Breath Air that Breaths Back: Visiting Lucia Monge's "Mientras Una Hojo Resira / While a Leaf Breaths," an exhibition review by Olivia Ann Carye Hallstein

featured ecoartspace artist

samantha passaniti

"All the materials I have use are ecological and of natural origin collected personally from the environment, or recycled materials of various types. In addition to the aesthetic aspect it presents, I see the material as significant, that is, as a vehicle of other meanings, of analogies and dialogue between me and the things of nature in which I see often spiritual and existential values ​​that I try to communicate in a more or less explicit. The natural materials that I have collected to date are mostly organic (wood, plants, leaves, branches, etc.) and inorganic (minerals, earth, clays, etc.) materials linked to certain specific places." samanthapassanitiartstudio.wordpress.com
