Land Art Spuren von Orten, flüchtig

Traces from places, 2012/ 2017, 2012/ 2019

Substances on linen, 112 x 48 cm each

I started the project Traces from places (stizis da lös) in 2012. Substances from earth, bark, rock, mineral springs, water and others that are found in nature are collected over a period of time in different places, put on paper or linen. Linen fabric buried in rocks, in the earth or between pieces of bark. Some are attached to trees over a period of time (linen with earth application) and exposed to the weather.
