Project Description

Rocking Rocks

Flint beach rocks, mirror, various dimensions.


Works investigating the juxtaposition of mirror and stone, weight and balance and rock and roll. Devised also to invite touch interaction, whilst toying with the beholder’s perceived levels of risk from such handling.

To make these a number of round beach stones were collected which had partial holes or recesses. Various widths and lengths of 2mm thick mirror glass were cut, edges made safe and then fixed into the recesses. The lengths and widths dictated individually by the need to stay within the limits of each rock’s unique tipping point.
