I traveled to Ireland in search of the sublime feeling of both beauty and fear that comes with standing on the edge of a cliff, overlooking something. I wanted to investigate geo-cultural patterns and phenomena within the landscape. I wanted to prove that these coincidental patterns exist and that rocks, no matter where in the world, form a solid cultural foundation.  I made rubbings of the rocks along the coast of Nohoval Cove while also photographing the cliffs.  By chance, the rock rubbings echoed the photographs I took and vise versa.
