Art Bite: Earth As Lover
Welcome artists and authors, Annie Sprinkle and Beth Stephens for an amorous path to saving the planet. Their new book Assuming the Ecosexual Position: The Earth as Lover describes how the two came together as lovers and collaborators, and how this union led to the miraculous conception of the Love Art Laboratory.
Annie Sprinkle and Beth Stephens have been life partners and 50/50 collaborators on multimedia projects since 2002. They are authors of the Ecosex Manifesto and producers of the award-winning film Goodbye Gauley Mountain and Water Makes Us Wet, a documentary feature that premiered at documenta 14 and screened at MoMA in New York. Sprinkle is a former sex worker with a PhD in human sexuality. Stephens holds a PhD in performance studies and is founding director of E.A.R.T.H. Lab at University of California at Santa Cruz.
