Land art and site specific sculpture in the urban setting. Environmental sculpture is an art form which uses the environment as its material. Concrete art is, like any art form, human made and is therefore geometric in essence. Public art is art which can be viewed and accessed by the public.

environmental sculpture

The more general term is 'environmental art' is an art form, developed in the 20th-century, intended to involve or include the spectators rather than to just occupy the same space; the form can be regarded as having developed as part of a larger artistic current that sought to break down the historical dichotomy between life and art - but more probable is that the artist, and in particular the sculptor, felt the need to envelop the observer with sculpturally devised surroundings. The environmental sculptor can utilize virtually any medium and material, from earth and stone to water and plants. Light, wind and rain are a natural component of environmental art.

In the late sixties the sculptor Lucien den Arend had a calling card with the text 'environmental sculpture'. His first official environmental project was an enclosed garden en a social employment plant in Dordrecht Holland - Dienst Sociale Werkvoorziening.
