From the Earth
From the Earth is a project that looks at the modern British quarrying industry and explores the teleology of the men, the machinery and the landscape it creates. Ironically these less accessible, perhaps even hidden areas are now used to process imported stone on the ground where natural resources were once produced. The project is a response to 'Slag Heap', which looked at the aftermath of the collapse of the quarrying boom of the 1800's, From the Earth focuses on the industry as it stands now in its evolved state.
