Pavement Tile with Text
Museum and natural reserve Divnogorye, Voronezh area
white concrete
elements of landscape design, each 30 × 21 × 2.4 cm

The text of the document is inscribed as counter-relief on the surface of 21 tiles and says: “State strategy of development of places of heritage, historical and cultural national reservations and museum parks on the territory of Russian Federation.” One tile is the size of an A4 sheet of paper.

My task is to attract attention to the specificity of the place using artistic means and through delicate interaction with the environment.

I use an already existent functional element of the landscape (a pathway, a platform), ascribing additional significance, as well as decorative and expressive qualities thereto.

This work suggests concentration and “looking under one’s feet.”
