The module examines the close relationship between the arts, culture, and landscape and garden design through history to the present day. There is reference to land art, environmental and ephemeral art, and sculpture, along with the performing arts. An emphasis on current trends in the work of both artists and designers is placed within the historical context, affording students an understanding of the relationship between the arts and contemporary landscape design. The transference of ideas from one medium and one creative field to another will be explored alongside the interpretation of ideas. Working on site with various communities is evaluated and students develop creative skills while adopting a self-reflective approach to working artistically with landscape and with others.
