Empathy for Nature: Socially Engaged Art for our Future
Over Skype, I sat down with Shimshon Obadia, an interdisciplinary eco-artist, based out of the Okanagan valley in British Columbia, Canada.
Obadia is has several projects that engage the public, primarily youth, in creating artistic experiments in order to generate a deeper empathy for the environment around them. We spoke about the use of available resources, the relevance of artistic work outside of the art institution and why it's important to lean to empathize with nature.
