27 million tons of dust from the Sahara desert (the Arabian desert is an extension of the Sahara on the Arabian peninsula) go directly to the Amazon rainforest carrying phosphorus which the Amazon rain forest depends on in order to flourish. From this fact, we collected soil from the Colombian Amazon, we have brought it to UAE and dumped it in the desert, returning it to where it comes from. With this gesture, we show how we as human beings are also active geological agents of mineral transport, but also showing the invisible ties between these quite opposite places on the earth.
