Το Green Museum είναι ένα website που ασχολέιται με την οικολογική τέχνη. Καλλιτέχνες που χρησιμοποιούν υλικά της φύσης, ή μέσα απο το έργο τους εκπαιδεύουν τον θεατή γύρω απο τα οικολογικά πρόβλήματα που αντιμετωπίζουμε ή απλώς βοηθούν με το έργο τους στην επίλυση ένος οικολογικού προβλήματος.

The first picture is a work by Georg Dietzler called "Self Decomposing Laboratory".
Straw bale, poplar wood constuction and shelves, PCB contaminated soil, oyster-mushroom cultures, moisture contol unit, information board about soil analysis, 10x10x12 feet, plastered surface.
Oystermushroom cultures inocculated in PCB-contaminated soil (Mixed with growing media of woodchips, straw & potatoes) will split off the chemical structure of PCB into non-toxic substances in a period of about 18 months. Depending on climatic conditions the mushrooms have regenerated the laboratory unit and adapted to its surroundings in between five to ten years. The laboratory has been constructed which allows visitors visual access only. Environmental agency scientists doing soil analyses have access only, their results and microscope photographs will be presented on an information board while the process of decontamination is invisible
WHAT IS ENVIRONMENTAL ART?
In a general sense, it is art that helps improve our relationship with the natural world. There is no definition set in stone. This living worldwide movement is growing and changing as you read this.
Much environmental art is ephemeral (made to disappear or transform), designed for a particular place (and can't be moved) or involves collaborations between artists and others, such as scientists, educators or community groups (distributed ownership)। These variables can make exhibiting this work difficult for traditional museums so we created greenmuseum.org: an online museum for global the environmental art movement.
