Most sculpture symposiums in the world are aimed at working in materials like stone and wood - there is an increasing number of symposiums where snow and ice are supplied by nature. During the last decades there have also been symposiums in which artists can work directly with the environment - land art, or earth works, and other environmental projects are the results. There are all kinds of artists who participate in these manifestations; but they all have a social awareness without which it would be almost impossible to do this kind of work. They must be cooperative and have an open mind - willing to help colleagues and to work together.
Natural landscape or the urban environment is not a studio where one can work alone and only be concerned with one's own needs and wishes. Within the framework of a sculptur symposium there are not only the colleage participants, but there is also the public to to communicate with. Taking them into consideration during the creative process is a personal thing; art in the public space should be just as independent as art in the museum.
