forest soil

The word "forest soil" is stamped into the wooden floor and relates to the complex structures of a forest and wood as a warm working material. The optical similiarity to the signs of carpenters refers to the work done by hand and elementary and needful action. The metaphorical standing on the wooden ground made out of the forest places the basic room structure within a cultural and artistic context. This work shows the meaningful necessitiy of casual and common things. Standing on the floor one can barely see the word and if it has been recognized one has to bow down to fully see the installation. While moving down the own symbolic position and this specific gesture gets conscious.
