Spirit Rock, 2016, granite boulder, paint, 4.5' x 5.5' x 10'   Spirit Rocks are a common public forum at many universities and represent a sort of violence against geology. In order to disrupt the cycle of messages painted on the rock throughout the semester, I decided to strip paint from the Spirit Rock at University of Mary Washington, where I'm an adjunct instructor. The project gives a voice the the strange materiality of the rock, a true geologic oddity of the anthropocene.

 Spirit Rock, 2016, granite boulder, paint, 4.5' x 5.5' x 10'   Spirit Rocks are a common public forum at many universities and represent a sort of violence against geology. In order to disrupt the cycle of messages painted on the rock throughout the semester, I decided to strip paint from the Spirit Rock at University of Mary Washington, where I'm an adjunct instructor. The project gives a voice the the strange materiality of the rock, a true geologic oddity of the anthropocene.
