Visual recordings of the soil gathered from small-scale organic farms, community gardens, woodland and family homesteads across the UK.

Chromatography is a soil analysis technique taught within the agroecology movement as an accessible and affordable way for farmers to better understand their soil. I learnt about it as an artistic process via the Land Art Agency and am interested at how it sits in the space between art and agriculture.

If you'd like to send me some soil from your land for a soil chromatograph to add to the collection, please get in touch.
