Several art forms and concepts are experienced through the nature-based sculpture program:
Experiential: "Allowing the viewer to experience the sculpture by entering its space allows the viewer to become an integral part of the work. As such, the meaning and/or purpose of each piece is determined by the individual's experience." (Clemson University)
Ephemeral: Temporary art that is susceptible to decay and the elements and thus changes over time.
Site-Specific: Art that is created for a specific place or landscape. Site-specific artists incorporate their surroundings into the concept of their work.
Installation: Artworks that alter or enhance our experience of the place in which the work resides.
Nature-based: Sculptures created with natural materials.
