ABSTRACT

This research studies a decentralized and multi-centered ecological art movement focusing on Yatoo's “Yatoo-I Project”(2011-) and “Global Nomadic Art Project”(2014-) of Yatoo, which were born in 1981, In 2011, the ecological art movement, starting with the Yatoo-I Project, is aiming for “decentralization, multi-centering, and the direction of consilience” Specifically, the “Yatoo-I Project” implements the ecological art movement as an decentralized online networking (or nomadic online). Meanwhile, the “Global Nomadic Art Project” runs the eco-art movement as a multi-centered offline networking (or nomadic offline). This paper compares and analyzes these recent ecological art movements of Yatoo focusing on ‘deep ecology, spiritual ecology, social ecology’ which Carolyn Merchant considers as three types of ‘radical ecology’. In other words, we will look at ecological art movement in connection with ‘deep ecology’ ('Nature Art' of Four Seasons Research Society) → ‘spiritual-ecology’ (decentralized Global Nomadic Art Project) → social ecology (multi-centered Yatoo-I Project). We will also focus on challenges that ‘social ecology transformed from deep ecology’ and ‘ecological art of consilience’ must address through a critical review of ‘deep ecology’, that has been studied by social ecologist Murray Bookchin and other social ecologists. In conclusion, the ecological art movement today calls for research on ‘interdisciplinarity’ and ‘transdisciplinarity’ with other genres. Today, the ecological art movement forms a richer discourse by meeting people out of nature rather than living in nature through ‘consilience’ and ‘decentralization/multi-centering’.
