If you have used earth materially or symbolically in your creative practice,Â or in some way addressed the value, function, or meaning of soil in your art,Â Â you are cordially invited to take part in an onlineÂ survey about soil and art.
â€œAlthough the arts play a critical role in sustainability discourses, the actual opinions, knowledge and practices of artists are rarely a subject of scientific inquiry. This is why your voice is so important!â€ With your help, the researcher in charge of this project, Alexandra Toland, hopes to identify a wide spectrum of art projects that bring new awareness to the thin layer of matter on which all life is based, and to gather information on the various conditions under which such works are made.
ThisÂ surveyÂ makes up part of Ms. Tolandâ€™s PhD research (at theÂ Technische UniversitÃ¤t Berlin) on the artistic use, interpretation and representation of soil and soil conservation issues. All data is collected with utmost integrity for research purposes. Specific details about individual projects and persons will not be disclosed without respondentâ€™s consent.Â As a symbol of appreciation for your participation, Ms. Toland would like to feature your work on theÂ soilarts.orgÂ research platform.
