Beneath the Paving Stones 2 (Navvies Square)


A single paving stone from the neighborhood of the artist's former family home in Islington, London. Cast from Portland cement, Mt. Pinatubo volcanic ash, and afixed with informational label on the underside. Placed back into the ground at the location where the original paving stone was removed, creating a new island or extension of the Philippine archipelago.

Inspired by local souvenirs from the Philippines, each object is marked with the text “This product is made from the actual volcanic ash of the 1991 eruption of Mt. Pinatubo Philippines” in the form of an iridescent plastic sticker affixed to the base of each manufactured stone.
