In a field in Oderbruch, eastern Germany, Asta Gröting began this work by creating a multiple-part plaster negative, which was to serve as the basis for casting several positives. These positives were then painted the colour of dirt, had phosphorus applied to them, or were gilded. Here, in keeping with her practice, the choice of the casting technique is a conceptual decision: the cast makes things visible which are normally hidden from sight.
