EarthMan performances may involve the planting of trees, the handing out of flowers, broadcasting seeds, and other events,  or just passing through  environments whether human populated or not.  Most performances are documented on both film and video.

Shapelle 5.20.100, Auvers sur Oise, France 1990

Dion as the Spirit of Van Gogh 100 Years to the Day and Hour that Vincent died.  Here with a torch during a musical performance, he then led the audience to the village center where candles were given to the crowd assembled for a memorial.  Dion then led a procession by torch-light through the village and fields to the cemetery where he layed on the grave of Vincent with the torch illuminating the scene.  As the crowed assembled, some of them placed sunflowers on Dion, laying there in ragged, rotten, moldy clothes, face covered with his tattered straw hat.  He stood up and hopped over the cemetery wall just behind the grave as the torch faded and went out - a culminating performance for the installation, Shapelle 5.20.100, Auvers Sur Oise, France, July 29,1990 with Olin Calk and Louis Perrin
