1992 5000 sticks

5000 sticks
1-30 September 1992
Nature and Culture, Husum, Germany

I hammered 5000 sticks along the coast of Husum City in Germany every day for two weeks. The city is known for strong winds and the large ebb and flow of the tide on the coast. Under such an environment, I waited on the coast until the tide was at the ebb every day so that I could hammer the sticks. The act of hammering sticks records my trivial existence in contrast to nature, and also becomes an evidence of the moment I was there.
