The work makes use of soundless cracking agent, an expansive mortar, that was developed for splitting rock and concrete in urban densely built areas without any noise or vibration. The cracking is a result of pressure created by the expanding agent. In the installation the moment when the stones crack is unpredictable. Whereas the new, silent and unobtrusive method improves efficiency in urban construction, in the exhibited piece it works in the opposite direction. The time in the installation makes no concession to the gallery’s opening hours neither to the stuff or viewer’s schedules. The stones are cracking in their own time.
