Walking is human`s basic progressive movement that contributed majorly to the anthropological evolution. As the hands and the face are freed by standing, human`s physical relation with The Earth mostly became limited to the soles. This relation is later altered by the filter of other materials-rubber, concrete, asphalt. 

Nelipot links a basic movement of human race to our digitalized environments as a current state of human`s walking-based progression. The actual soil hosts a digital screen displaying grass and a tree`s water reflection on the ground. The installation suggests a symbiosis of the digital and the physical with an ecology-friendly use of the digital media.
