Inspired by the rocky relationship between man, his surroundings and the real and imagined history already embedded in that land and in those memories, the intention was to provoke new associations in the mind. The visual artillery included books earth mirrors the written word and television screens; aurally, constantly tuning radios and controlled chaotic combinations of sound. The artists suggest the relationship is active, and maintain that the land is not purely an impassive mass, but something exhibiting evidence of experiences.

A limited edition CD and catalogue was produced for the installation.
