In light of the International Year of Soils (2015), Alice in Wasteland: An Adventure in the Depths of Soil is a multidisciplinary art exhibition aiming to introduce urban consumers to soil, industrial agriculture and permaculture. Inspired by Lewis Carroll's book Alice in Wonderland, the project connected performance, photography and sculpture in the desire to emphasize the value of soil.
