In the embedded rock and quartz seam, the line of lichen growth and shifted sand, this stone is telling its history down through geological time.

Part of the artist-in-residence program at the Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery in Launceston, Tasmania (1996, 1998) and exhibited in resulting solo exhibition, Fragility & Endurance, at the Gallery in December 2000 — February 2001.
