What we remember is just as revelatory as what we forget. 


The effects of our species are literally written into rocks. Rocks act like black boxes, databases, cameras, recording our drive towards extinction at our own hand, through the pollutants we push into the sky. 


This work addresses climate justice through buried histories, of racism, patriarchy and homophobia; parallel histories that have been written over for centuries, but which remain as truths set into stone. Through physical excavations into photographs of rocks, I tear, burn and open space to see glimpses of parallel pasts, with images sourced from dominant culture perspectives found in National Geographics, and resistance perspectives found online.
