By Rob Carter: "Stone on Stone" is a stop-motion video animation that uses the architectural language of High Gothic and Modernism to invent a contradictory history of their evolvement. The theme starts and finishes with the vast and unfinished Cathedral Church of Saint John the Divine, NYC. It is contrasted with Le Corbusier’s La Tourette monastery in France, competed in 1960. The video uses this anomalous but single-minded architectural vision as the foundation for a new emergence of Gothic religious expression, resulting in a complete and unified fantasy cathedral – akin to the building that the Church of Saint John might have aspired to be.

The BBC worked on a series about the impact of the internet on modern society. They interviewed some of the very key people on this matter, such as Kevin Kelly, who suggests a very similar view like I did on my talk called "The Digital Evolution" I gave at the Webinale in Berlin last year.
