Photo: Back to the roots

A display by the School of Natural Resources and Environment focuses on the power of art and ecology in creating public awareness of environmental issues. Students in a landscape design class taught by Assistant Professor Beth Diamond used their investigations of art and public space to underline the connection between nature and culture and the human dimension of ecology. In "ROOTed" students sought to demonstrate that beneath the surface, roots of a tree provide stability, strength and life. If visible, they would reach out past the trunk, where they would bleed their imprint onto the ground, making a clear connection between the life of the tree, the earth around it and our place rooted in nature.
