On Stone

By way of preparing a lithography stone for use, this narrative takes a polychronic journey between Jurassic lagoons and digital space, to reflect on the intimate relationship between a limestone matrix and a body moving through time. My intention is to consider this transformative coupling of geological matter and lived experience, through its temporal, environmental, inter-personal, and physical affects. Illuminating this task, a collection of observations that consider lithography stone as geological trace, material, technology, and artefact. In lingering on the substance of lithography stone, this language making process takes a materially grounded view, to explore the mutually generative worlds of stone lithography and writing.
