Cross sections of marble or granite* look strikingly similar to photos of galaxies – indicating the millennia of specific environmental factors which illustrate a rocks history. Similarly these rocks unfold to present the factors and consequences of their making. Marbled with water from the Bow River, they are an exercise in considering the time it takes to create that which lasts longer than a human life.
*Common materials for the facades of buildings in Quarry Park.
