Adversity Timeline or Breaking Rocks is an object intended to be screwed to a wall.  It consists of polythene bags containing rock in various stages of decomposition, which hang from a length of rope that has brass fixings attached.  

Sewn to the base of each bag is a strip of acetate, inkjet printed with words related to the state of the rock or its relationship to life experiences.  

This is another book that comments on life - its vicissitudes, highs and lows and what we make of them or they make of us.  

It is contained in the 'found' box redesigned to fit it.
