DESCRIPTION/STATEMENT: Bones are thought of as hard and static objects when compared to living tissue, but they are in fact dynamic and highly variable parts of the body. My piece consists of detailed reproductions of a single portion of a geode. Over a different time frame, rocks and minerals act similarly to bones. They are the shifting, life giving and slowly surprising bones of the planet – easily overlooked until broken. They then ask for examination and much attention.
