DESCRIPTION

To worm… to move slowly. Slow like digestion.

To move through the earth and therefore through time.

Worm as time traveller, primitive creature moving down, deeper and deeper,

the further down the further back. As far back as the core.

Consuming and discarding earth and therefore time.

How old is the soil? What is the pattern under the plough?

Not the old straight track but a meandering three dimensional path.

Dragging and depositing the deep past onto the surface.
