57 Environmentally Influenced Installations

From Water Cooler Installations to Cracked Planter Art

— August 8, 2013 — Eco
The best way to make a public statement is by creating a piece of art that can visually express your message, and these environmentally influenced installations are perfectly designed to education viewers on sustainability and preserving our earth.

While most people are aware of the importance of sustainability and enforcing eco-friendly methods into their lifestyle, sometimes it takes a larger-than-life visual imagery to get the message across more clearly, and these eco installations are here to do just that. From melting ice berg installations that are meant to showcase the severe problem of global warming to recycled trash sculptures made entirely from garbage, these eco installations are offering individuals a chance to experience detrimental issues to the earth through these artistic designs.
