Environmental art seeks to show how humanity should be grounded and connected to the natural world socially, philosophically, economically, and spiritually. Its artists identify the disconnect of humanity from the environment and attempt to rectify it through four different means:
  • Exposing and critiquing the ways in which humanity is derelict in its duty to preserve and be connected to the earth;
  • showing the limitedness and fragility of nature and the environment from disconnection;
  • highlighting how disconnectedness from the earth causes social inequality and injustice; and
  • worshiping the beauty and greatness of nature and those connected to it.
