The Fine Line is a global environmental art / science project consisting of 12 ephemeral sculptures made on high points linked by a line. The line encircles the earth starting and finishing in New Zealand.

The line symbolises the interconnected and interdependent network of natural systems that connect us all in the web of life. Each sculpture is made from natural materials found at the site and return to nature.

The objective was to create a powerful narrative with art. Art that acts as a story for global understanding and action towards redesigning human systems so that they align with the cyclical operating principles of natural systems.


We initiated the Fine Line project in 1995 to express the importance of interconnectedness and interdependence in nature.

Now it’s a book

Featuring over 200 exceptional photographs and essays by specialists in Systems Theory, climate science, fine art photography and regenerative design Fine Line elaborates on the artists’ underlying ecological design philosophy.

Can we create the international will to stabilise climate and population, eradicate poverty and restore ecosystems before it is too late? This is the fine line we tread today.
