"One in a series of Rock Record works, the first begun in the Antarctica Dry Valleys in 2003 utilizing Dobson Spectrophotometer ozone depletion charts to record impressions in global hotspots. Rock Records are mute records of cathartic geophysical events; 33RPM, a specific historic and catastrophic sonic event close to the heart of Auckland city. The impressions, taken direct from sun exposed scoria surfaces record the eruptive results of a volcano that spewed out these rocks of molten lava some six hundred years ago. The noise has long sice vanished but we can see what remains." Phil Dadson, July 2014
