The project series documents Pettena's project "Quarry". It consists of a series of three drawings showing a quarry wall painted in pink washed away by a rain storm, consequently creating and leading to the formation of a small lake of pink water at the bottom of the quarry. A camera, placed on the opposite side of the quarry, films the whole process. "The drawing traces an intervention in three successive phases in a context modified by the work of human beings and then reconquered by nature [...]." 
The project series contains drawings of the three successive phases, one showing the painted wall, the second showing the rain storm, and the last one showing the lake formed at the bottom of the quarry with the pink stained water. It also includes project descriptions in English and in Italian.
