I have always been a distant admirer of my father's profession as a geologist, but never been quite sure how to make use of this fascination within my own practise as a writer and artist. Through the use of a litographical printing method, I wanted to explore the paradoxical possibility of printing the archival material with the material in itself. Using stone for re-printing stone, much like the looping processes of physical geology. Of all the archival material i had brought with me my father's first book on physical geology proved to be of great use. By using an old Xerox machine in the office I found a method of freely scaling and distorting fragments of text and image throughout the book in order to create a narrative of my own. The resulting prints became a collage of text and image seen through my own poetic perception of geology.
