David Paton

Artisan Granite Specialist


David is an artist-researcher and craftsperson with a specialism in Cornish granite. His practice is a synthesis of sculpture and quarrying, performance, film, auto-ethnographic and collaborative field-work, that jointly examine the relationship between place, making, material and body. As an Immersion Fellow, David is focusing on creating a contemporary litho-sonic chamber that addresses the cultural and geological trajectory of Cornish granite, while critically attending to the immersive properties of industrial crafts-based labour practices.
