  6. MODgal. As requested, more about it:

    A stabilising/balancing soil donation to the Amsterdam Council so that a particular bit of a park can be used to hold outdoors art (research showed the soil was somehow not in top condition for that.)
    You can check the whole process here but I'm afraid it's only in Dutch: http://www.layercakelab.org/donoractie.html

    I find it a very strong piece, actually.
    It also makes a lot of sense as it's called "Kunstaarde", which literally means "stabilising/counterpoise soil". However "kunst" on its own means both "art" and "artificial". So, not only a good action, but a clever one too.
