Summary/Abstract: The art theory discourse is in lack of terminology regarding the analysis ofconnections and interactions between nature and contemporary art – especiallyartworks that are in connection or are created in a natural environment. Theaim of this book is to introduce and define starting points and terminology inthe analysis of man-made interventions in natural environments that have someaesthetic value and artistic intentions. These terms are interdisciplinary and areused mostly in the realm between theatre and visual arts. I argue for exampleterms like: performativity, performative space, viewer, site-specific, aura, atmosphere,etc. The dimensions of the research do not allow a large number ofartworks to be discussed. Therefore, it can only include specifically illustratedand underlined subjects.
