Lertchaiprasert’s interest in collaborative art led him to cofound the land foundation (1998)—which involved the conversion of rice fields into a place for artistic engagement. He found the 31st Century Museum of Contemporary Spirit (2008)—which involved the conversion of body and mind into a place for artistic engagement (our body is our museum and spirit is art).
