alcarol retrieved blocks of local stone from an abandoned quarry. This stone is partially covered with native mosses and lichens giving it a surface that captures the geographical maps of the Dolomite’s mountains. In the vertical section planes are clearly visible the different layers of geological sedimentation, with shades ranging from antique pink to gray. The top surface of the blocks is the rough and wrinkled natural surface of the rock, unsanded and not worked by man. alcarol has preserved this “skin” marked by time using a resin resembling the water in which these stones lay submerged through various geological eras, freezing the present instant and endowing the blocks with new functionality and new design.
