Abstract

This article based on a presentation in a philosophically orientated symposium “Culture Heritage and Nature” held in year 2001 at University of Lapland in Rovaniemi, Finland. The aim of the article is to clarify the essence of environment art activities as a method to interpret and represent meanings of the landscapes in the North. As a product of a Western artistic education and a native of a northern village, I try to place myself midway between the two, where I look in two directions at the same time from a single point. I try to examine the North - my own phenomenal world of experience - as an intertextual narrative; it is a narrative in which Western art and science are interwoven with the stories, meanings and truths of the local people.
