environmental art project
This scenario is about constructing environmental artworks.

The conventional approach would be for a local authority or landowner to appoint an artist to undertake the work. The artist might be given a completely free hand or, more likely, would submit designs for approval to the 'client'. Although this process has led to some fine environmental artworks, it has also resulted in artworks that are neither wanted nor respected by local inhabitants.

This scenario shows how it possible to create something that belongs to the community. Within a framework managed by artists, local people are involved in designing and making artworks and their work becomes part of the local landscape.
