This Proficiency in Arts Report entitled, “Artistic Interpretations on Interaction with Nature” is a research, experimentation and creation process that is based on the observations on human interaction with nature. Accordingly, the view on which this research and creation process is based is the 18th Century American Transcendentalism movement. First, this philosophical, literary and religious movement, which has developed on the possibilities of being physically one with nature, personally experiencing it and moving with it by regaining the abilities we had at birth, has been discussed and defined by comparing the approaches of Eastern and Western cultures to nature since ancient times. At this point, the definitions and analyzes of modern ecological approaches, which are still being discussed today, have also been included. Throughout this report, a great deal of inspirational citations, from the articles, books that include experiences and texts by authors such as Ralph Waldo Emerson and Henry David Thoreau, who are the pioneers of Transcendentalism, have been included and tried to be defined. In line with these citations and definitions, the impact of ecological approaches on different fields of arts and how it affects the perception of art have been chronologically and briefly analyzed through the artworks of the artists given as examples. Information on how art has been moved from two dimensional surfaces to earth and then back to the spaces we inhabit, and how it deals with the natural processes have been presented. Finally, the personal artworks, which have been inspired by this research, aiming to create an experience through the processes they present, the creation processes, their visuals and definitions since 2015, based on the changing human-nature interaction through the centuries and cultures, have been presented.
