Soil Sample

soil sample

‘Soil Sample’ is an interactive sculpture featuring videos, live feed cameras, and miniature worlds. The project is a collaboration between Shayna Strype and the SVA Graduate Art Practice Participants during a month long summer residency. Each participant created their own individual artistic contribution to embed in the overall work. Inspired by Jane Bennett’s concepts of ‘Vibrant Matter’ and ‘Thing Power’, the group explored their personal connection to objects and home, as well as our global connection to the planet; what has been personally lost, kept, treasured, and discarded and what will remain long after we are gone.
