Over the last several decades, our planet has seen a rise in population, swiftly followed by a rise in pollution, overflowing landfills, and environmental destruction. Contemporary artists have begun to raise their voices and use their craft to draw attention to these issues.

The thorough slides presentation includes art and videos from 2 contemporary environmental artists - Aurora Robson and Vik Muniz - and explores reasons why artists create art using recycled / eco materials.
