    Materials: Diverse recycled Andes stones

    In Geology of the Diverse the pieces form a territory or place we can access with our body and relate to its unfinished state, open, in constant transformation. The circular shape resembles the earth’s crust made up of layers of various minerals that revolve around a nucleus that attracts them. The geological layers are the skins of an organism that is in constant movement and transformation.
    In the small fragments of local stones -material considered mostly as waste by big industry- we see the opportunity to build a new geology and recreate, in a handmade way, the history of the territory we inhabit. By joining fractions of stones from different origins of the Andes, we reorganize a territory and time that, in some way, we had fragmented. This process tells us about the interactions between different heights and geographies, as well as the correspondence between the rapid transformation that man makes of his habitat in the face of the slow geological processes that have been taking place for thousands of years and are visible in the earth’s crust.
