Accumulating knowledge and resources

(Note: Post Image found at

Since I first wrote my concentration first semester of sophomore year, I have found a number of new resources and heard of various new artists.  I have discovered various links, some of which I found coincidentally surfing the internet, and some of which classmates showed me.  I’ve done research in other classes (such as in the art department) in which I’ve accumulated new resources, and I’ve heard a bunch of new names in the eco art field through classes, friends, the internet, etc.  I had not previously compiled any of these resources into one place where I could neatly find them.  I realized if I did not find a way to organize all the new knowledge and resources I’ve found, I could easily forget about some of it or not know where to look when I wanted to find it.  Therefore, I decided to organize in a google doc these resources for my first goal of preparing for my senior capstone.  I first list internet links to useful videos and websites, then artists, and then a bibliography of resources.  For artists I chose to just make a list of all the eco artists I could think of, including ones I started researching for my concentration, so that I had a list of names I could potentially use for my capstone when the time comes.  The bibliography primarilly comes from a research paper on eco art I have been working on in Junior Art Seminar.  Below is a copy of the page I made.
