Sailing stones are a seemingly magical geologic phenomenon, occurring in flat desert expanses: stones move, incrementally, over months or years, leaving long tracks in the sand, appearing mysteriously animated, alive.

Geologists have come to understand that a combination of low friction sand surfaces, strong winds, and water and ice are the cause of these uncanny travels. A more poetic interpretation is taken as the guiding theme for our upcoming exhibition, Sailing Stones.
