The Geological Survey

The Geological Survey is an audio visual chronicle of the year I spent in the desert of the American Southwest. Created over millions of years, the geology of the Southwest transcribed its past in these stones. Each of the pieces contained within is my interpretation of how each formation might sound. I spent many months hiking on the iron rich desert sandstone and replicated what I imagined on those hikes in the studio.
