R000CKS focuses on the problem of formally representing knowledge in the age of the “big flat now”. “If the classical ideas of ordering, indexing and systematic and functional organization were tied to the idea of the encyclopedia as the possibility of fully describing, understanding and ordering the world, this project shifts its focus towards ideas of accumulation and aggregation as a new formal language that conceptualizes the internet as a new model of knowledge.”

Specifically, rocks provide a blank formal medium which allows for the attentive manipulation of material, effect, and graphic. Through the combination of ultrarealistic elements, graphic two-dimensional elements, and representations synonymous with 3D environments, layers of the digital realm are collapsed into a single image which develops new layers of representational understanding. Game as final product.
