The monster mash in motion
This is a 9x9 grid of high-shutter speed photography arranged in chronological order of the machine while it is running. This is the machine that can't run too fast or the olives will be heated up and lose the flavor components necessary to be considered an Extra Virgin olive oil under the California Olive Oil Council's seal. This is the milling of the olive and the artistry and skill of the miller is at work in the decisions made in this part of the process.
