Cropped crops

“Aks i øjenhøjde / Ears in eyeheight”
Wheat mounted in clay. 60x60cm. 
The wheat was picked from Mæla in Skien, a field with the history of crop circles and rock carvings.
The installation is made for the publication:
“Med ansigtet mod akser og kornet I koordinator”
 Newspaper in tabloid size. 
The publication describes the height of humans and wheatcrops through the last millennium. The coordinate system shows how there is a reciprocal connection between the height of wheat and humans, in times of industrial agriculture.
