This page is a compilation of Archive research material , found and mined during this research. Below, you can find a very wide ecology o resources, from Essays, Photographs, Videos, Documentaries, News Articles, Official Documents, Cartography, Websites, Objects, Tools, Sculptures.

It allowed me to further understand Marble holistically, from a Animist perspective, to a governance issue, a material of expression for classical sculpturers before Chirst, to the tools that mine and transform this resource, from it’s geological structure, mineral structure and how these different agents have been weaving a network of agents, and actors on the landscape, categorising it and quarrying it for exploitation.

It is a long history woven in - or with - time. Has any thread, it’s links are immensurable. Here I tried to collect things that were important to me, and to the development of this project, which only highlights it’s incompletion.

But I believe this to be perhaps the most interesting point. Usually we tend to look - ‘wow’ - at marble and quickly dismiss it. After all it’s a material like any other, albeit an expensive one, we think. This can perhaps better highlight the problematic and the extent of the networks liked to something we overlook.
By illustrating different point-of-view, we can better grasp how humanity has been facing these issues. Often in separation, speaking nearly different languages, finding it’s own terminologies, aesthetics and imaginaries. Perhaps here we can again highlight the impossibility of the perspective of the Stone, the lack of empathy historically and renewed ways of looking at our environment, curiously by studing pre-industrial (and pre-scientific/technocratic) societies.

It has been of great value to access these materials, and I believe that these should be made open and accessible to anyone. To browse and to research is exhausting, hopefully this compilation will give you a good overview and a place to start, perhaps, your own research.
