EGO ECO is a collection of essays, artist descriptions and photographs documenting the Fall 2013 art exhibition, EGO|ECO: Environmental Art for Collective Consciousness at the California State University Fullerton Begovich Art Gallery. Curators Allison Town and Emily Tyler invited viewers to engage in a global conversation about human relationships with the earth―encouraging individual reflection and collective environmental mindfulness. Patrons were asked to remain aware of how they viewed each artist’s work and how their own interaction influenced their understanding of the artist’s message. The curators proposed that by remaining aware of the act of perceiving―thinking about thinking―individuals become more actively engaged and open to critical digestion of ideas.

Included in the exhibition catalog is a Director’s Forward by Mike McGee, essay by Patricia L. Watts (Founder/Curator of ecoartspace), Curatorial Statement by Allison Town and Emily Tyler, essays by both curators, descriptions of featured artwork including artist biographies, photographic documentation of the exhibit, art and opening reception, artist-in-residency projects by artist Nicole Dextras and associated educational programming.

Featured artists and collectives include: Vaughn Bell, Terry Berlier, Nicole Dextras (Artist-in-Residence), Fallen Fruit (David Burns, Matias Viegener and Austin Young), Green Patriot Posters (Dmitri Siegel and Edward Morris), Newton and Helen Harrison, Jacci Den Hartog, Chris Jordan, Alison Moritsugu, Robert and Shana ParkeHarrison, Esther Traugot and Andre Woodward.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

The term “collective consciousness” is used by sociologists to explain how autonomous individuals identify with a larger group through shared beliefs and attitudes. We live in an era in which mobile technologies and social media outlets make this kind of sharing exceedingly easy. The ease of anonymity, mobility, and speed with which people access information can drastically divert one’s ability to focus attention on an individual issue and carry through with effective action. So, what does our contemporary collective consciousness look like? Is it in our power to reform? We propose that in order to remediate a collective consciousness, it is essential to revitalize human relationships and community.

EGO|ECO encourages commitment to the slower digestion of ideas and to real action and participation rather than apathy. While the gallery space functions to enhance viewers’ understanding of collective consciousness in regard to global environmental sustainability, the artist-in-residency collaboration and associated programming events generate the means for community engagement and meaningful action, which extend beyond the gallery setting and into our local environment.

(Excerpt from Curatorial Statement by Allison Town and Emily Tyler)
