The slate came from a quarry in mid-Wales which Long passed whilst completing a walk 'From the source of the River Severn to the summit of Snowdon, 60 miles'. In installing the work 214 stones are laid down in an arbitrary pattern within a circle drawn on the ground in pencil with a diameter of 6.60 metres. None of the stones touch and although they are selected at random the fairly even distribution of sizes and lengths is intentional.
