Symphony of the Stones is an installation that examines the correlation between the abnormally high presence of heavy metals and magnetic residues in contaminated soils. The project originated from a site-specific study and a series of interventions in a former marshaling yard in Montreal. The installation explores the interconnections between urban infrastructures, pollutants, soils and living organisms by activating mineral contaminants and various extractive residues.
