White mounds placed in a meadow.
Mole mounds are loose layers of soil, are the sputum that is produced when the mole digs its burrows, its dwelling. They refer to a network of paths and tunnels under the ground that are invisible to us.
The loose piles of earth supply the underground passages with oxygen.
The white mounds visible in the landscape are solid shells. They have been emptied of their original
their original function. They no longer refer to a network of paths existing beneath the surface.
They stand alien in the landscape. The empty forms – architecture? Piled up to a view, a sight?
