DECRUSTATE 2015, Special Edition to co-finance project ORIGIN

Introducing DECRUSTATES 2015: this Special Edition for the United Nation International Year of Soils is offered to raise seed-capital for a continuous global production of DECRUSTATES for public exhibitions to prepare the ground for an inter-disciplinary,  inter-cultural and participatory festival called ORIGIN.
In the center of the ORIGIN exhibition/platform stand dozens of 5 x 5 meters DECRUSTATES being exhibited in public open spaces around the globe.  Add your city!

They are objects of thin crusts of original earth surfaces detached from their place
of origin and taken to exhibitions around the globe.
I find ground formations/ information on surfaces of dunes, in riverbeds, at sea shores, on mountains, but also in cities and at industrial sites.
During the DECRUSTATION process I select, bind and remove such earth surfaces to exhibit them: elevate them to eye level changing perspectives and contexts.
