A black-and-white photo affixed directly to the wall. A white border frames the image of a rock jutting out of water. Waves eddying around its base suggest it is an ocean rock. The rock rises from the left, descends, rises even higher to a peak, descends deeply, then rises and plateaus creating a slightly rounded third peak. The top of the rock is slightly lighter than its sides. The shape of the rock suggests a woman"™s head and torso in profile, as if floating on the surface of the water.
TD: This is a film that maintains just one image.
