Nature-based sculpture documentary airs in June – CLEMSON


CLEMSON — A documentary on the latest nature-based sculpture in the South Carolina Botanical Garden will air in June on public television.

“Touch the Earth: A Chameleon Meadow – In Praise of Shadows” tells the story of two artists of different cultural backgrounds who were invited to address a water runoff issue in the garden’s redwood meadow.

To meet this charge, Hiroko Inoue of Japan and Yvette Dede of Charleston had to merge not only their individual artistic styles and processes but also the requirements of environmental engineering, landscape architecture and aquatic horticulture.

“Touch the Earth” will air on S.C. Educational Television (SCETV) at 7 p.m. Wednesday, June 3, and on the South Carolina Channel at 9 p.m. Tuesday, June 23. It is the seventh program in a series detailing creation of the garden’s 16 nature-based sculptures.

CNW Group

“Waterfront Toronto’s Lower Don Lands development was announced today as one among 16 founding projects of the Climate Positive Development Program, a Clinton Climate Initiative (CCI) program that will support the development of large-scale urban projects that demonstrate cities can grow in ways that are “climate positive.” Climate Positive real estate developments will strive to reduce the amount of on-site CO2 emissions to below zero.

The Climate Positive Development Program was launched by President Clinton, Founder of the William J. Clinton Foundation, on May 19, 2009, at the C40 Summit in Seoul, South Korea. Along with the other founding projects, Waterfront Toronto – Lower Don Lands will demonstrate Climate Positive strategies, setting a compelling environmental and economic example for cities to follow. To reduce the net greenhouse gas emissions of their Climate Positive Development projects to below zero, property developers and local governments will agree to work in partnership on specific areas of activity. This includes implementing economically viable innovations in buildings, the generation of clean energy, waste management, water management, and transportation and outdoor lighting systems.”
