"Just by putting them in these formations and in vitrines, they take on this loaded meaning. And they pose technical, artistic challenges, but they didn’t need to be spectacular. I made one out of concrete and the rest out of alumilite resin, which is just a sculptor’s tool. And I like the way they come back to the way that I’m not a scientist but just an enthusiast. Using latex molds to make fake rocks is the most popular thing to do for draft hobbyists. It’s really easy, you just cast a rock and daub it with gray paint and you have the perfect looking rock. But I wanted to take this hobbyist’s novice tool and use it in a really refined way."
