Peter Fend

Peter Fend received his BA at Carleton College in 1973. Seeking a synthesis of art and science he founded the Ocean Earth 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.
