Hands in the deep ground

Sander Blomsma, Bahar Orçun, Agnes Tatzber


Focusing on the human-made island Marker Wadden, we were fascinated by the aspect that they are built out of materials from many places accumulated due to different forces over time. At this present moment, you can step on dry ground because humans have influenced the way of deposition of sediments. By exploring the ground we are standing on, we couldn’t help but notice the similarities of the process of the deep layers being formed through millions of years; and the most domestic acts known to humans, the process of cooking and baking. In this way we took the theme back to the interior. Through an activity that seems rather mundane, we talk about the forces that shape the geological layers and learn about their structure and composition.
