The process of working with soil is a humbling one. The material narrates a lesson for all involved about their landscape. Buildings and objects that use soil take on its meaning. But often, the hegemony dictates that this meaning is humble and undignified. In this project, we are interested in exploring the vocabulary of soil through the eyes of ancient and emerging practitioners. Through comparative study we will get to see what soil can reveal to us, contextualising our landscape in relation to what it has been through. In this time when climate change is affecting the entire planet, global connections using familiar materials are important when exploring solutions.
