21. Stitch Split: the breath of the geologic

 

This film is an an audio-visual montage of splitting granite and the quarry walk through photo-film. Tim and a few apprentices can be seen being shown how to split a large block of granite. The different modes of imagery capture the relationships between people as they set about a task, and the intimacies of reading the granite as it is worked in and around the quarry. Agency is registered here as a ‘showing’ of  material properties.
