A part of the massive Strata project was to conservate a major land art work by Nancy Holt Up and Under. This documentation video from summer 2013 here describes just one week action going on with the process. Holt, one of the greatest artists of our times, passed away in February 2014 (The New York Times article) .

Strata is a network which embraces art together with nature. The fundamental question concerning the relationship between man and nature is the basis for the efforts of the community. 'Strata' is named after the Latin word for 'layers' and refers to the different types of sedimentary rock layers that are exposed when excavating a ridge.
The Strata network produces, conserve and manages public artworks within a natural setting. The origins of Strata are in the small village of Pinsiö, 20 kilometers from the city of Tampere in the Western Lakeland region of Finland. Pinsiö is a collaborative area and village located at the crossroads of the Hämeekyrö, Nokia and Ylöjärvi municipalities. See Location.
