For the past 2 years, I have been researching the acceptance of moon rock by President Childers from Nixon, critiquing the removal of rock from the moon and the gifting of it to nations and states, wondering what it really meant to accept this "clinching gift" and how did we reciprocate? This research translated into a number of staged/manipulated photographs and moving images.
