And everything began millions of years ago, when the ocean, the Tethys, washed sand into the shells of the ammonites; they turned to stone and the Alpide belt was formed.

Monolithic rock formations emerge layer by layer and seem to convey unity, a monophonic space. A monosignal coming from countless speakers – from a block in the middle, from above, from the sides, from in front and in back. But just as there is difference in rock, so too there is in unison. The individual layers start to crumble, giving way to a polyphonic granular space, a new landscape.
