Tacit Hill is launching with a new book by the sculptor Emily Young, Time in the Stone. Its front cover no words, simply what seems to be a picture of the sun. This is in fact Emily's 'Solar Disc II' from 2006, a large polished disc made from Chalcedony. The book is highly absorbing, images of Emily's work posed against blackness, with occasional pictures from space to set the work in context. carved and polished from ancient stone, there's no reason why these works should not outlast humanity.
Very much an artwork, the promise of Tacit Hill books to also sing out some new inroads into science shows promise n that the the New Scientist is set to feature the book in a two page spread. The book's introduction by Richard Fortey likely helps that transition.
Emily has a new show opening in the crypt of London's St Pancras Church on May 14th. The last built a true following on word of mouth, 1000 visitors a day showing up at weekends ... for a more tranquil viewing, arrange to visit in the early days.
