The Balancing Rocks reflects on the notion that capitalism based on the free market can find its natural equilibrium without the interference of a third party. It looks at supply and demand of natural resources making reference to the principle of scarcity, and it also looks at the development of technologies that help create a sustainable life.
The balanced 3D modeled rocks are texturized with images of natural disasters that refer to climate change matters and images of scientific advances that help promote the sustainability of our environments and ecosystems.
“Ironically, these digitally modeled rocks could be very likely not suitable for finding balance with in real life… My aim was simply to describe the absurd notion of one way forms of production, where natural resources are extracted from the planet, and expecting the planet to replenish itself from them, or finish until they are gone. It is also related to the notion that the free market and consumerism would find their own equilibrium.”
