Influenced by a visit to the Burgess Shales, a prime fossil site in British Columbia, Canada and considering methods of measuring time (like tree ring data), a block of cedar wood was thinly sliced on a bandsaw, the pieces mounted on a wooden backing board to form a large printing block approx. 5’ 6” x 3’. This printing block was subjected to various processes, the prints acting as documentation to the block’s destruction
The original block was finally fired in a kiln, sandwiched between clay and a cement bed - its impression captured in the clay, its residues on the bed
