"Layers are evidence of time and change. The peeling back of one layer to expose another makes me aware of what lies below my feet. It is difficult to believe that something so strong and powerful can be so hidden whilst being so close. At Bonnington, I have excavated an area of bedrock about six metres by eight metres, upon which I have built a Stone House. Containing the bedrock inside a house accentuates the sense of revelation of the stone floor.
Houses are usually places of security, shelter and comfort for people. There is something unnerving about entering a building in which nature is the occupant. These houses become a forum in which the nature of the place and human nature meet. I want people to look into the land - not out of the building."
