A small clear tannin stream continuously flows around and below the shelf and provides a constant and pure source of water. Apart from the very occasional appearance of large birds of prey there is little sign of other fauna.
‘Lost Rocks (2017–21)’ is an ambitious, slow-publishing artwork – a library of forty three books, by forty six artists over five years. A unique seam of mineralogical and metaphysical telling unfolds.
