HUNDRED-LEGGED STONES

2018


Hundred-legged stones
Flung far beyond the riverbed
Mark the way back



A project exploring the link between geography and geology. Stones trace temporal and spatial shifts over millennia. They are tools and waymarkers; milestones and millstones. Instrinsically connected to a sense of place, they have long been used  to mark sites of ceremony and ritual movement.

A series of ceramic pieces were cast from Aotearoa (New Zealand) river stones. The natural path of the original forms was expedited through human movement. This project explores the effect of this rapid transition and disrupted migratory pattern through reinterpreting a ritual practice.
