Reflecting on the contradiction between the stable an unstable, the work refers to both a rock, characterized by being strong, reliable and hard, and to rock, moving gently from side to side. While the stone is solid, the body changes and ages with time. The duality becomes apparent in the folded woman simulating the shape of a stone and a body constantly swaying. Expressing both rest and the possibility of slipping, the work evokes safety and something dangerously unknown.
