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.
