Genesis of a stone is a concertina book, made using the black method. It's the process of transforming a plate's state, whereby starting from complete blackness -nothingness- I work varying the plate in order to progressively pull out the whites -light areas- until reaching a final image. I've printed different states from this process of the plate's memory, presenting it us a concertina book. Visually, our perception of an object derives from the light which falls on it and not from the shape itself. The shadows are what define it for our eyes. A stone is born from blackness.
