As Good As A MOONROCK
2012

Object, Sculpture
JSC Lunar-1A Simulant, Plaster, chickenwire
Display Cabinet, 62 x 32 x 65 cm

The classic plaster rocks of science fiction movies are three-dimensional painted fantasies. 

The heart of this rock is in this way as humble and typical. But, it’s surface is officially, as good as the real thing.
