The Science Behind Environmental Arts:THEORY OF ICEALITY ON ENVIRONMENTAL ARTS
*The incorporation of the rights of flora and fauna in a "Universal Peace Equation" is the first major change in achieving a sustainable Peace on Earth in over 2000 Years.
At the ARK in Berea, global home of the environmental arts movement, David Jakupca, states that, "The special Theory of Iceality belongs to a class of "principle-theories". As such it employs an analytic method. This means that the three elements which comprise this theory, Humanitarian, Environmental, Arts and Culture, are not based on hypothesis but on empirical discovery. The empirical discovery leads to understanding the general characteristics of natural processes".
s the first professional art organization to be solely dedicated to this endeavor, this has made ICEA to be the leading force in the Environmental arts and a force for socially responsible activity.
professionally exponentially and has akupca asserts that, "Respect for human and environmental rights and greater understanding between people from different racial and religious backgrounds must be the first goal of society in today's fast-changing, globalized world." The goal is accomplished according to Jakupca, "Is by focusing on the creative process and affirming that the "Theory of Iceality on Environmental Arts" is a catalyst for social change by empowering participants, transforming environments and contributing to collective healing and economic development."
Jakupca's Theory on Environmental Arts (ICEALITY*) was enthusiastically embraced by the United Nations by 1990 and was featured in many of their World Conferences;
1- 1992 Earth Summit on the Environment, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
2- 1993 World Conference on Human Rights, Vienna, Austria

Jakupca with his wife, Renate, are the co-creators of the 'Theory of Iceality on Environmental Arts', aligning the vision with real-world social conditions and logistics. This work established and popularized inductive formulas for scientific inquiry, sometimes called the Iceality Method. His demand for a planned procedure of investigating all things natural marked a new turn in the rhetorical and theoretical framework for the science of aesthetics, much of which surrounds conceptions of proper Environmental Art Methodology today.
Jakupca has been recognized as the 'Spiritual Father of the Environmental Arts Movement' and in that capacity, several disciples of his work went on to spread the word on Iceality. His ideas were influential in the 1990's among scholars like Jane Alexander, Chairwoman of the National Endowment of the Arts (NEA), who in the ‘AMERICAN CANVAS’ Project frequently adheres to the Method of Iceality approach in its idealistic visions and entrepreneurial inquiries. Major organizations, in particular, the United Nations, featured his Theory on Iceality in many of their World Conferences. The result of this major global public promotion at the United Nations level is that the Theory of Iceality on Environmental Arts is now considered as the cornerstone of the modern sustainable global Environmental Art Movement, and this concept is now replicated by artists, architects, urban planners and sustainable organizations throughout the World, reflecting a still growing global audience. However, it must be noted that not all of Jakupca's contemporaries did accept the new theory at once.
David Jakupca is also considered to be the philosophical influence behind the dawning of the millenniums Sustainable Age. In his works, David Jakupca called for a development of avant-garde trilateral symmetry of social systems to align his vision with real-world social conditions and logistics that contend with the problems facing earth’s future. He always proposed that these environment/humanitarian/cultural systems should be done in conjunction with charitable purposes as a matter of healing this planet. Recalling Einstein’s admonition, paraphrased here, that a problem cannot be solved by the same thinking that created the problem in the first place, Jakupca, being ever mindful of the ecospheric integrity, advocated that the Environmental Arts should be practical and have as a holistic purpose the improvement of all living things.
This changed the course of art in history, from a merely contemplative state, as it was found in ancient times, to a practical, inventive modern state that will, it time, continue to lead to the new Methods of Iceality that will prevent Ecocide and make possible a Sustainable Age, a Culture of Peace for all Living Things in the following centuries.
Although much of these Methods of Iceality proposals will not be established in his lifetime, his legacy was already considered by TIME Magazine, in their 2000 Millennium Edition, as one of their Heroes of the Planet.
Similar to a Cultural District with the historic ARK in Berea as its focal point, the North East Ohio Area where David worked, has been 'branded' as the Home of the Environmental Art(s) Movement by the International Center for Environmental Arts (ICEA) and as 'Cultural Industry' will continue to foster civic identity, cultivate tourism, and brand Ohio Environmental Arts and Culture in the Bioregion.
For as one of his profilers, India Keyes commented, Jakupca's influence in the future world is so important that every person, plant or animal well being may be traced back to him. It is possible that someone using the Methodology of Iceality may find the cause of cancer, solve the worlds hunger problem or eliminate global warming.
David Jakupca’s philosophy in Art is displayed in his vast and varied art works and writings, which might be divided into the three great branches of the 'Theory of Iceality on Environmental Arts':
~ Environmental works – in which his ideas for a universal reform of knowledge, scientific method and the improvement of a sustainable state of Peace for all living things is presented.
~ Humanitarian works – in which his reforms in moral philosophy and social practices for Mankind are proposed.
~ Artistic works – in which he presents his original applied aesthetics on art and cultural objet d’arts.
