Prima materia

Often, when I was alone, I sat down on this stone, and then began an imaginary game that went something like this: "I am sitting on top of this stone and it is underneath […] The question then arose: "Am I the one who is sitting on the stone, or am I the stone on which he is sitting?

- C.G. Jung

I concentrate on the stone and the dialogue with the matter begins.

The alchemic lab-oratory ( theatrum chemicum ) begins.

I prepare myself , I wash the stone and present to myself the raw material.

I fuse canvas and stones to create a synthesis between miner and rock.

When I put the stone in a glass container, the link between mining and

alchemy is reinforced. [Hermetic glass]
