Mark Dion is a prominent pioneer of environmental and ecological art. As a visual artist, he appropriates scientific methods of fieldwork, collecting, ordering, and exhibiting objects. He reflects on the visual representation of nature, engages in institutional critique, contributes to postcolonial discourse, and bears witness to the devastating impact of humankind on our natural environment. Nearly a hundred illustrated texts by Dion and interviews with the artist from the mid-1980s to the present are published in this book. His writings are characterised by curiosity, directness, and intellectual versatility. Often polemical and mildly ironic, they emphasise the urgency of his work.
