First there is a mountain


This film marks the start of the project First There is a Mountain by artist Katie Paterson.

First There is a Mountain is participatory artwork which invites participants to sculpt beaches into mountains of sand to form micro-geologies, using a series of 'buckets and spades' made in the form of world mountains: Mount Kilimanjaro (Africa), Mount Shasta (USA), Mount Fuji (Asia), Stromboli (Europe) and Uluru (Oceania).
