Some Citations from Amanda Boetzkes' THE ETHICS OF EARTH ART

“[Lucy] Lippard argues that the move toward the virtual disregards the importance of the local environment. She thus posits the local as anti-institutional and anticorporate stance. Artists should, she argues, ‘innovate not just for innovation’s sake, not just for style’s sake, nor to enhance their reputation or ego, but to bring a new degree of coherence and beauty to the lure of the local.” (39)

Hans Haacke : “Make something which experiences, reacts to its environment, changes, is nonstable…Make something sensitive to light and temperature changes, that is subject to air currents and depends in its functioning on the forces of gravity…Make something that lives in time and makes the spectator experience time…Articulate something natural.”(44-45)

Luce Irigaray: “Porosity, and its fullest responsiveness, can occur only within difference. A porosity that moves from the inside to the outside of the body. The most profound intimacy becomes a protective veil. Turns itself into an aura that preserves the nocturnal quality of the encounter, without masks.” (62)
