In the fields of Castilla I buried some objects
Reading Jacques Monod's biology book, Chance and Necessity, I was daunted by a question he poses.
In his book he describes a hypothetic situation where some aliens land on our planet, long after our disapearance as a civilization, finding the remains of our existence.
He wonders what type of preconditions would they have to establish to identify which objects were man-made and which were natural.
In my installation, some of the objects are man-made, some come from nature. When the viewer approaches the site I present the viewer with a similar question to that of Monod's.
S/he is free to dig out the holes or not. Some of the holes contain the objects on the label some don't. It's up to the viewer to explore and decide if I am telling the truth or not, or if they prefer not to know.
