Excavations of Eternity
'Excavations of Eternity'
Nick Alexander and Jeanette McCulloch
This collaboration grew from an approach made by Jeanette to Nick to suggest that she ‘have a go’ at illustrating one or two of his poems.
We realised that we were engaged in the broadest possible exploratory sweep across the entire spectrum, not only of experience, but of existence itself; anything under the sun, and most things that swim beneath the moon, were fair game.
In truth, whilst we have unearthed some extraordinary discoveries, so far we have barely scratched the surface of our subject. Even if we were to lay a metaphorical Mariana Trench through a cross-section, we are more likely to miss the foundation stone than locate it.
A full colour limited edition large book was produced, and an exhibition of Jeanette's original artwork, prints and Nick's poetry during H.Art 2007
