"So I was also really intrigued with the mill, which was in a shambles and falling apart. Most of it hadn’t really been touched since the 1920s, and I was intrigued by the contrast between something that looked like the beginning of the industrial era and something that was part of the contemporary working of a quarry. I’m very interested in the way the industry and landscape relate to each other, and the tension from that relationship is what interests me most."
