“Giants” refers to the industrialization of Carrara marble that originated 30 million years ago. This particular marble is used nowadays in construction material, road construction, in the chemical industry and foods industry by grinding and pulverizing it and integrating it as a bonding agent.The pill manufactured under forging pressure as the perfect form, the marble as prehistoric rock that won’t be pressed into a fundamental form, but after closer inspection one realizes the unique appearance of the individual pill that has been cut out of a whole block.
