Rock is a sonic garden made up of three porous black monoliths arranged in a cluster of complementing forms. Its blocks are resonators, responsive to human presence. They emit vibrations and generate a changing soundscape. Rock is built as a result of interdisciplinary research in the material possibilities of water-permeable concrete, its possible connection with sound and their physical interaction with the human body. Rock is inert – cast and carved. Rock is a clement monument.
