Hannah Materne

Erosion is a design research-creation piece acknowledging the agency of rock. Based on Hannah’s accumulation of natural objects from the sacred space of her cottage, Erosion considers her differing relationship to the rock from the city versus from the lake. The emerging poem is scientifically accurate, based on the specific geology of Lake Wah Wash Kesh. It considers the feel of the crystallization from magma, and what it might be like in a sealed room, in the palm of a human. The image of the sacred space brought forth in the text tells its story with its physicality.
