Great Stone Project 2022 : on 15th June 2022 I left the Machrie Stones and made my way back to Lochranza to catch the ferry to Claonaig. On the way I noticed several large stones on the foreshore overlooking the Kilbrannan Sound, and passed by an ancient small cemetery. Stone seemed to be everywhere; my landscape was changing. Here are some photographs below.
What constitutes landscape? Should I see in colour or monochrome? What did stone bring to a landscape and how to measure that? Who were the people who built these monuments some 3000 years BC? What were the monuments for? How could I co-join with that landscape? Stone was the primary relic from this foregone age and must somehow be pre-eminent here. How could I make these landscapes more alive? What are the rules in this landscape?
