Digital Rocks

is a new contemporary art gallery addition to the historic Mission San Jose in San Antonio, Texas. The aim of the project was to provoke the way we deal with history, both architecturally and symbolically. While, on the one hand, the Mission is a beautiful symbol of Catholicism and the Latinx legacy in San Antonio, it also equally represents the subjugation of native peoples. Similarly, the rocks which form the intervention are ambivalent towards the existing convento, sometimes respectful, sometimes forceful, but never straightforward or easily summarized.
