An Attempted Partial Taxonomy of Rocks…

August 14, 2013 by SHED

An Attempted Partial Taxonomy of Rocks… is an ongoing examination of geologic process through the lenses of history, mythology and personal narrative. Begun in the fall of 2011 while in residence at The Wassaic Project, in Wassaic, NY, the work was published as a folio of photographs and found images accompanied by text. An Attempted Partial Taxonomy of Rocks… has been subsequently reworked for presentation at S.H.E.D. Projects as a site-specific lecture / reading exploring the relationships between geologic time scales, geometry, power, death and sex. It’s sort of about rocks, and it’s sort of about everything else.
