Projects : The Rock/Transfer

The Rock/Transfer is a collaborative video about the weight of history in which a large rock is moved around the three Virgin Islands utilizing all local means of transportation including a donkey. The Rock/Transfer is a light-hearted attempt to investigate an aspect of the "heavy" history that has shaped this part of the Caribbean through a symbolic gesture in which an object that signifies the past is moved from a pre-Emancipation era Sugar Factory to a restored Colonial building housing an art museum.



The Rock/Transfer - Janet Cook-Rutnik in collaboration with William Stelzer from Janet Cook-Rutnik on Vimeo.
