Deconstruction and Reconstruction: Contemporary Public Art Under the Vision of Ecological Aesthetics

Xiaoguang LI


The ecological idea of contemporary public art design plays a due function value in terms of urban ecological planning and design, coordinating the relations between art and life, and cultural construction. The systematic theory of ecological aesthetics is required in supporting the action of promoting public art construction in natural environment so as to elevate the public sense of participation in arts. The application of ecological aesthetics in public art creation and criticism of natural environment embodies both theoretical basis and profound sociological meaning, being capable of effectively improving the creation level of public art in natural environment from two aspects of content and form and thus better advancing the harmonious development between man and nature.
