Ecological Art or “Eco Art” is a contemporary form of environmental art created by artists who are concerned about local and global environmental situations. “Conservation through Creation” is a perfect example of what eco art can be. In this case, this art project is being used to bring awareness to the habitual water consumption in Southern California in context of the drought that the state is facing due to climate change.
