Balancing Rock, 2005Rocks6' × 7' × 3'6"

Balancing Rock is inspired by a need to connect with nature by placing a personal mark on it. The artist has noted the prevalence of this genre of graffiti on naturally occurring balancing rocks. For this installation, the artist has carefully assembled a balancing feat that, in nature, could take thousands of years to construct. On it, she has etched a replica of a peace sign and the word “love” that were carved into the shingles of her childhood home by the previous owners.
