In Japanese Shintoism, for example, kami is a concept that allows natural phenomena, animals and rocks among other forces of nature to possess qualities original to deities and spirits. Stone Being is a study of the possible spirit of lifeless material and the human reactions to them. Could the stone have knowledge that we can’t even imagine to exist?

The work was exhibited at Project Room, Helsinki in 2021.
