Bedrock explores the struggle and transformation of body and raw material. Miller as Sisyphus, a figure carved from stone, is enclosed within a walled space. She enacts the mundane and repetitive task of moving boulders into different formations against the fading sun in pursuit of enlightenment.  As her actions seem to churn the clogs of time the rocks become heavy with meaning and start to represent tectonic plates, countries or planets. A tree bursts through the cement reaching for the heavens as a totem to the beauty and strength of nature.


Materials: cement; rocks sourced from local material waste site; foam
