comment: this floor installation consists of earth from the same locations selected by the artist as the earth rubbings: "earth is the basis of everything that we have to do with. you walk over it, but you don't see it, or not consciously. everything develops and grows in the earth, including our food. it often has radiant colours and colour nuances and is different from place to place."
