»The Chinese Vase and Artistic Works in Landscape«

Art as a cultural footprint in the landscape.

When i put myself and the work of my hands and my cultural heritage into the landscape.

Ways of artistic collaboration with the environment. 
There are several ways to listen before starting with an art installation.

Art in Nature as a spiritual statement.
A meditative working process and an open mind can create a spiritual quality.
