An open archive is important to the spirit of our project. The archive is a tool as well as a resource. We suggest that the core of the archive should be duplicated and maintained in three widely separated geographical locations, on different continents, each slowly augmented by those who use it. Multiple locations and independent application could be seen as a vehicle for passing on our research results and specific methodology to future generations. It would allow the project to remain generative and not fossilize. Until appropriate partners can be found our entire material archive will be housed in the library at the Edinburgh College of Art, where access can be requested by anyone who wishes to examine our un-edited research film footage, transcripts, individual images, tool samples and other material and notes.
This website is being constructed as a limited virtual archive. It includes edited short films and selections from the texts. The STONE project website will be sufficient for most people and will eliminate the inconvenience and expense of travel or the need to spend time watching 150 hours of unedited film.
