 Peter Fend

«Peter Fend received his BA at Carleton College in 1973. Seeking a synthesis of art and science he founded the Ocean Earth Construction and Development Corporation in 1980, where he assembled artists, architects, as well as scientists. The group‘s aim is research on alternative energy sources. They use satellite imaging to monitor and analyze global ecological and geopolitical hot-spots, largely for media clients. Considering the world a living earthwork, ecological aspects are linked to and interconnected with artistic aspects.»
Peter Fend lives in New York.
