Regan Rosburg is an artist and naturalist. Recently, her work has been an investigation into society's collective grief, melancholia and mania which manifests as consumption and distraction. She has conducted biology-based research trips to the Bahamas, Canada, Costa Rica, Indonesia, Thailand, The Pacific Northwest Coast, and the Smokey Mountains of Northeast Tennessee. Rosburg works in a variety of materials. Her resin work contains precious artifacts: plant and animal relics, bones, insects, lace and painted imagery. These objects are suspended in incredibly laborious, three dimensional resin "paintings." The use of resin poignantly addresses her growing concern over plastic pollution in the environment, while presenting the beauty of plant and animal species. Regan curated Axis Mundi - an exhibition of 21 artists from all over the USA and Canada that responded to the topics of Environmental Melancholia, Collective Social Mania and Biophilia.  Links mentioned Ecopsychology  The three terms expressed on Axis Mundi: Artists on Ecopsychology Freud's “Mourning, Melancholia, and Mania” PDF Renee Lurtzman on Environmental Melancholia  E.

Beverly Naidus is an interdisciplinary artist, writer, and educator. While developing an innovative studio arts curriculum, she has been creating interactive installations, digital projects, artist books and narrative and conceptual drawings for over three decades. Much of her work is audience-participatory, inviting people to tell their own stories in response to the theme being explored. Inspired by the lived experience, topics in her art focus on environmental and social issues, including how we are individually and collectively affected by racism, climate change and multiple forms of systemic oppression. Her unique courses at UWT emerge from her own projects and include Art in a Time of War, Cultural Identity and Art, Body Image and Art, Eco-art, Labor, Globalization and Art and the Artist as Visionary and Dreamer. She is the author of Arts for Change: Teaching Outside the Frame, numerous essays on socially engaged art and pedagogy and some recent pieces of speculative fiction. She has taught at several NYC museums, Carleton College, Cal State Long Beach, Hampshire College, Goddard College and the Institute for Social Ecology. She has guest lectured and led workshops all over North America and in Europe. She facilitated and designed the permaculture-inspired, eco-art project, Eden Reframed, on Vashon Island, WA, funded by the Royalty Research Foundation. Her work has been exhibited internationally, in mainstream museums, university galleries, alternative spaces, and city streets. It has been reviewed and discussed by many significant writers, including Lucy R. Lippard, Suzi Gablik, Paul Von Blum and Lisa Bloom. As part of her new collective, ARTifACTs, she is collaborating on an interactive, multidisciplinary project about the future. “We Almost Didn’t Make It,” imagines the artifacts (and stories that emerge from them) found by our descendants that give them insights into the risks taken by activists (their ancestors) that allowed the descendants to exist. It’s an audience participatory and multi-media work that gives participants the opportunity to imagine the artifacts that their descendants might find.

Beginning in April 2016, environmental visual arts activist Noam Bedein began documenting the treasures of the Dead Sea, gathering evidence of new dramatic geological phenomena and measuring the constant and rapid receding water level. Scientists are warning that if something is not done immediately, all that will remain of the Dead Sea will be a small pool of salt water. His mission is to share the incredible beauty of this World Heritage Site using many forms of visual arts; such as a photo exhibition display and virtual reality  demonstration, all for sounding the alarm of its imminent disappearance. Since founding Dead Sea Revival Project he has been recognized by National Geographic and CNN/VR.

The sun is warm with a slight breeze tingling down my face as I walk on the sidewalks. Over the next ten, twenty or even thirty years, these clear, sunny skies may not even exist.

Daniel Hudon, originally from Canada, is an adjunct lecturer in math, astronomy and physics. He is the author of two books of nonfiction: a humorous intro to the universe, called The Bluffer’s Guide to the Cosmos and a lyrical prose compendium designed to raise awareness about the biodiversity crisis, called Brief Eulogies for Lost Animals: An Extinction Reader. He likes to go hiking and kayaking and to dance Argentine tango. He can be found online at DanielHudon.com, @daniel_hudon, and in Boston, MA. A quote read by Ashley from Tagore blazed onto a sign in a hillside stand of deodars in Simla, India: Be still, my heart, these great trees are prayers, and as I watch them swell above me I see the symmetry of hands pressed together tapering skyward and try to remember when I last loved a tree so much I wanted to get lost in its forest, or even its shadow. Once in a Toronto park I saw a maple sing out as if it was the last tree on Earth; never had I seen such red for in Alberta, where I grew up, fall was brief and yellow, without maples. I remember telling my parents about it on the phone. On my block in Boston, every autumn a maple turns red in a slow burn from the top down over several weeks, as if refusing to let its fire out too quickly. But last fall it turned early, dropped its leaves before the end of August and now bark is peeling away from the trunk. All winter I wondered if it would bud in the spring and now I know. I fear it will be removed and don’t know what I will do then. Last year scientists said our planet had three trillion trees, enough to give each person four hundred and twenty two, a small forest and really, I’d like to know where mine are because I want to climb one of them, or perhaps build a treehouse, string a hammock between a pair, or walk among them as if they are elders of the Earth, praying for all of us.
