Animal, Vegetable, Mineral

A narrative of evolution. Images from a 1970s book on minerals were built upon, quite literally, through research into specific uses, purposes and histories of minerals (such as carbon, calcium, aragonite, feldspar). The mineral specimes become like islands in an indeterminate time and space, their potential to evolve still lying ahead or a potential that has since passed.
