Students in the Skidmore College geosciences lab course “Earth Systems Science” examine and discuss artworks that fit into three categories: the Earth as subject, the Earth as medium or material, and the Earth as canvas. Students then create a piece of artwork that fit within those three categories.
Inspired by the exhibition 3-D Doings: The Imagist Object in Chicago Art, 1964-1980
