The Unconformity Project

Michael Windle (Artist), Ewan Davidson

Research output: Non-textual formDigital or Visual Products


One day in 1788, James Hutton set out to prove to his two friends that the world wasn't created in 4000 BC as the Church told them, but was in fact billions of years old. His interpretations of rock enabled an understanding of some of the magic stuff, through his beliefs about Deep Time… about mountains, stars and galaxies... and evolution... 15 years before Charles Darwin was born.

This is a film contemplating art, religion and philosophy using more sets of three… friends, ages, and places, near to the Bass Rock - an island off the south-east coast of Scotland.
