Eco-art involves a transdisciplinary, multimedia, activist-oriented process, which addresses environmental and sustainability issues. There is a shift away from art as commodity and toward new creative possibilities of art in service to communities and ecosystems. Eco-art includes artists who consider it their role to help raise awareness and create actions about important issues and natural processes; invite participation and devise innovative strategies to engage diverse communities; work directly with others to augment the knowledge associated with particular fields; and produce works that inspire people to reassess the notion of commons. Eco-artists emphasize collaboration. Many of these artists work with indigenous and local community members, as well as specialists from a range of disciplines, including media, education, architecture, performance arts, sociology, engineering, and the gamut of sciences.
