This Wednesday September 29th, Studio Visits will welcome eco-artist Bob Bingham. Bob Bingham makes art that incorporates systems of growth, live plants and natural materials with mechanical and electronic devices. Through this combination of systems he addresses issues pertaining to a sustainable future where technology and nature exist in a symbiotic relationship.
Currently he is working through the Coleman Center for the Arts on a long-term collaborative project, One Mile Garden, to establish a community-based urban farming and food distribution program in York, Alabama. Bingham continues his mission to create proposals for growing all the buildings on the planet to change the Google Earth perspective ‘for the birds’ and the humans. He is a Professor at Carnegie Mellon in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Learn more about Bob by going to his website at http://artscool.cfa.cmu.edu/~bingham/index.html.
