''The French philosopher Jean-Paul Sartre suggested that when our fingers contact sticky substances it triggers an existential crisis centred on our inability to separate ourselves from the rest of the world. When my hands are covered in soil, I’m not sure if the process is at play – but I confess to a strange ambivalence. I have an uncomfortable sense of desiccation and loss of sensitivity. Each finger end acquires its tight-packed gram of black.''
