"In this day and age we can see clearly, for the first time, the impact mankind has had on the natural world, and the terrible environmental consequences which have followed. I was shocked to learn that since I was born in 1971, we, as humans, have managed to destroy one-third of the flora and fauna existing at that time.
As an artist I consider it my duty to use my public art to call for a better balance between culture and nature. I am trying to encourage a conversation that will change the way we think and ask questions. By doing so, I want to raise the awareness of the viewing public, resulting in a more careful and considered approach to our urban planning context." -Arne Quinze
Rocks Strangers are strange objects popping up where you least expect them and having a huge effect on the urban and architectural context of the environment. Rocks Strangers generate the sentiment of estrangement because of their electric orange colour. At the same time however, they evoke the primal emotions of curiosity and astonishment of man.
