FOR THE LOVE OF SOILS
A PEOPLE’S COLLECTION
This is a collection of soil samples donated by ordinary people who have a connection with a specific soil or place. Each soil is accompanied by an explanation about why it was chosen. The collection together represents a common voicing of appreciation for soil, land, growing spaces, and other locations including those which have been regenerated after toxic industrial processes. The soils will be used to create an artwork towards the end of the residency and the stories shared.
