A play on the origins of technologically amplified human cognition as a major force in geomorphology, Toolstream invites viewers to direct a flow of attention down a sequence of eroded rocks in two contrasting streambeds. The first is an archeological streambed, a chronological series of artifacts located in a flow of time during the Paleolithic when humans were first learning to erode rocks into tools. The second traces a downstream sequence of rock erosion by natural forces in an coastal karst river valley.
