The result of a residency spent on the Isle of Portland, off the south coast of England, this work explores various processes of erosion: from the slow yet relentless working of nature on the limestone cliffs of the island to other artificial processes which industrially transform the environment through repetitive and mechanised action. Indeed, we are actually talking about the same process which, layer upon layer, cut after cut, leaves its mark on the skin of things, thus disclosing the reciprocal inspiration of natural and human processes.
