SOLID GROUND reflects on the relation of man and stone. Where do human time and geological time meet? Where do life and stone meet? What if the stony ground we live on is not actual as stable as we think? What if it were to have a life of its own, and its very own story? And what if we can’t see humanity as separate from the geological process but that stone and man are intricately joined? SOLID GROUND is a journey in which the most diverse aspects things – from kidney stones to falling pieces of satellite, from astronauts’ earstones to stone quarries in Palestine, from atom bombs to volcanoes in Iceland - are all interconnected.
