The Earth is an interactive ceramic design, which makes reference to the traditional Chinese ceramic type ‚reverse pot,‘ made by Northern Song Dynasty Kuan Ware. The project produces spiritual rituals between audiences and the Earth at the consciousness level. Audiences can pour water into the pot, reverse the pot, sit and meditate nearby, touch the ceramic’s surface to appreciate these cracks, and do any action evoking emotion.
