the other of the same – cosmologies of the material and the sensitive

2019

 

The Other of the Same is an installation that explores the vital entanglement and material kinship that exists between skeletons, limestone and marble; three elements formed by calcium carbonate.

Limestone forms through the precipitation of CaCO3 in shallow ocean waters and through the massive accumulation of shells, corals, bones and other skeletons. After mineralizing, limestone can be subjected to strong circumstances of pressure and temperature; transforming into marble.

 

 

Rocks, fossils, carved fragments of marble and limestone, marine skeletons, tufa.
Paleogeographic reconstructions of Iberia on fossil limestone slab (60-140 million years ago), and Euramerica on marble slab (340 m.y.a.). Steel structure.
