Diane Tuft is a mixed media artist who has focused primarily on photography since 1998. Tuft lives and works in New York City...... She has always been fascinated by the mystery of what exists beyond the visible; and capturing this through her camera has been a guiding principle of her work....In 2012, Tuft was awarded a National Science Foundation Artist and Writers grant to continue her exploration of light beyond the visible spectrum in Antarctica.....Tuft ‘s installation, “Internal Reflection”, was exhibited at the Katonah Museum of Art in New York and at Art L.A. in Santa Monica, California. The exhibit was a combination of photography, sculpture, light and sound that explored the resonance between reflection of image and refraction of light. In 2008... Tuft’s work can be found in the permanent collection of the Whitney Museum of American Art and the International Center of Photography in New York City, and the Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill NY, as well as numerous private collections.

This site shows photographs that are mostly abstract, sometimes aerial, of extreme environments like Greenland and Antarctica; they are beautiful, thought provoking and brilliant . There are videos from installations and a preview of a book "Gondwanaland" - http://www.gondwanabook.com/.....http://dianetuft.com/

Crafty Green Poet - Environmental poetry, reviews and opinions. Plus ideas for crafts made from reused materials. All by Juliet Wilson. An example - "Nothing ends - all transforms,/ changes direction like a river bends./ Day becomes night, bodies decompose/ to feed roses, freeing spirits to roam./ When the earth dies (whether at our hands / or after peaceful millenia orbiting a dying star) / atoms from Amazonian rainforests / will become part of some magnificent beings / we cannot imagine on a helium atmosphered planet / so far away it seems beyond / the end of space". Good links to eco and poetry sites......http://craftygreenpoet.blogspot.com/



Martin Hill is an internationally recognised communications designer, environmental artist, and photographer. His design work has won awards and is featured in international galleries. His environmental sculpture photographs have been published on cards, posters, calendars and books since 1995. "In 1992 I became so concerned about products causing environmental damage because of their unsustainable design that I turned my focus to understanding and communicating about solutions to these design issues .... The use of the circle refers to nature's cyclical system which is now being used as a model for industrial ecology... redesigning products and industrial processes as closed loops - materials that can't safely be retuned to nature will be continually turned into new products..." .An extremely well designed and visually pleasing site (as one should expect) with photographs for sale online...http://www.martin-hill.com/

The Full Montage - Sheffield as it never was, in 1977- a series of photomontages by architect Cedric Green, putting sculpture in public places, a wry commentary on some of the new and old architecture and the lack of art. Exhibited at the Mappin gallery in 1977 and the Royal Society of Arts in London in 1989. Many of the objects used are household objects like a tap and a cheese-grater, blown-up to fantastic sizes, some are more exotic items like musical instruments and some are photographs of sculptures and maquettes by Cedric Green himself; all used to create a surreal but almost feasible city. The main interest in these images lies in their content and meaningfulness as a group recording what was and wasn't public art in Sheffield at that time and exploring the relationship between public art and architecture.....
