Ways of Understanding is a study concerned with the materiality of rocks, that deals with questions of perception, authenticity and value.

Departing from the question of how to know an object of the rock, I performed a systemic iteration of the idea of the stone through its many possible viewpoints.
From its geological definition to its crystallographic structure, its volume, its texture, its topography, its sound, its weigh, its index, its atlas… the installation tries to collapse and pull apart all these models of representation in search for a new idea of the stone.
