Rockhounding is the recreational study and hobby of collecting rocks and mineral specimens from their natural environment.

Rockhounding is part of research and work developed to document processes and games created to measure the passage of time. Such play is informed from limited materials such as those hand-carried and those within the landscape – rocks, trees, vegetation, paths, e.t.c. The work is framed through seriousness, the mundane, nonsense, failure and success.

Commissioned as part of the Outlandia Residency program 2013, curated by London Fieldworks. Outlandia is an off-grid treehouse artist studio and fieldstation in Glen Nevis, Lochaber, Scotland. A flexible meeting space in the forest for creative collaboration and research.
