Text from accompanying artist book:

One day while visiting the aquarium, I found myself peering into the side of an enormous tank. The windows put me below the water level, and I realized that this is the way it once was, in the days of the inland sea, before the fossils: bodies underwater. Only the glass separated my sea of air from a sea of water. I imagined myself existing before the Thornton stone - then saw myself in preparation to one day become stone - in brotherhood with the sea creatures, and looking ahead to eons of transformation.
