installation of physical intervention within the landscape

In Eastern European cultures, Papaver rhoeas was a symbol of agricultural fertility for centuries, as it was the first flower to come up in the spring and signified the health of the soil.

Dating back from 3500-6000 BC indigenous people in the region domesticated Papaver somniferum, and in regional and cultural communities the poppy remains a central feature in folk dress and embroidery.
