Stone pine series
I buried you with stones, laid them over
each visible part, gently one by one;
the shape of you took years to submerge,
beneath an eternal spread of stone pine.
After reading "The Mind in the Cave" and Italo Calvino's essay on "Lightness", The "stone pine series" explores permanence and fragility through the
utilization of two very different materials: stone, implying endurance as well as evoking the Palaeolithic use of art as magic; and large sheets of
fragile tissue paper.
