WELCOME TO THE MUSEUM OF ROCKS AND PEBBLES
A Leading Museum of Random Appreciation
The Museum of Rocks and Pebbles believes that we help shape the future through researching and preserving the past and present, and sharing our knowledge with the world. Through sharing and exploring our passion towards nature, we encourage appreciation for rocks and their unrevealed stories. We aim to confront social norms and make this a safe space to expand your mind.
The "Perfectly Deformed" series has been inspired by puzzles and riddles with the purpose to emphasise the importance of individual differences as these allow society to work and develop. Just like every puzzle has a different shape and colours, people come in all forms of shapes, races, cultures, religions, sexual orientations, genders etc. Yet, together we form a beautiful picture which is humanity. However, we need to remember that every puzzle deserves respect and every piece is equal to one another. Nature keeps inspiring us to share kindness and appreciate each other. However, we often ignore the message by simply being too consumed with our own self. This is why this exhibition focuses on how imperfect edges can come as one if we look closer into what may seem insignificant.
OUR MUSEUM’S MISSION
What We Hope For
We aim to confront social norms and become a safe platform to people of all races, beliefs, genders, sexual orientations etc. People just like rocks come in all forms of shapes and sizes yet are all equal and contribute to eco system in their own special way. Doesn't matter rock, pebble or a stone... they first came around billions of years ago forming the Earth we now live on and allowing us to reform in a way that can easily be called unimaginable. But people did not evolve to spread hatred and destruction so please let's all appreciate what came before us and what may come after. Most importantly let's appreciate each other and do not toss other people's feelings around like a tiny rock on a street.
WHAT ARE ROCKS?
Rock is any naturally formed solid mass or aggregate of more than one minerals or crystals. They form through physical changes including: melting, cooling, eroding, compacting or deforming. These changes also determine each rock as one out of the three kinds:
- Igneous: formed through cooling or solidifying a molten rock such as magma
- Sedimentary: often containing fossils, these rocks are formed in layers through deposition of grains caused by water or air
- Metamorphic: formed out of other rocks that have been changed due to heat or pressure
