“Humankind for over 75,000 years, has projected transcendental energy onto stone. Although we still share many of these sentiments with our ancestors, we more often try and see objects for what they are. In regard to these stones, the best way to reconcile this paradox, in my opinion, is to project your own metaphorical context into the stone, as I do.
For example, a personal projection I yield to, especially when sanding them, is that of a junction point between the outer and inner world. I entertain the perception of these stones as an axis point between internal and external infinities: without effort, for the medium/process easily lends itself to that effect.
Also this interaction begets itself, so the more I project depth into the stone, the more in existence it comes to be.”
