Re-Trails

Re-Trails consists of 33 braids made of trash that has been collected, washed and dried, from beach walks of appr. 30-60 minutes. The trash that is being collected, is that which nature cannot take care of itself. Every part of recollected trash has then been twined with fishing rod into 4 metres long braids. Every walk normally produces 1-3 braids. After a storm, there may become as many as 5 braids per walk.
Every braid has a text describing its date, trail and the songs that have been hummed along the path.
