Today ‘green’ is used as a metaphor for the natural world and for people who hold values that give a high priority to mutuality with the natural environment. For the news media ‘green’ has become a value, to be or not to be. In many societies there are various activities that amount to a broad green movement, and the last fifty years has seen the emergence of ‘green activism’, ‘green bans’ and ‘green political parties’. A diverse group of artists have been asked to consider their subjective response to ‘green’, The group includes four local artists, two from other States and one team from overseas.
