Looking down at the ground, feeling the soft moist grass beneath my feet, that sense of connection and harmony with the earth is documented.

There is an emerging science pertaining how conductive contact with the Earth, which is also known as Earthing or grounding, is highly beneficial to our health and well-being. Earthing appears to minimize the consequences of exposure to potentially disruptive fields like “electromagnetic pollution” or “dirty electricity.”

This photograph was the starting point to a series of prints which began with a simple etching of my feet and visible clothing onto the plate; then adding more to the image with dry-point tools and some sandpaper.
