Three Rock Mountain Study I, II and III at Kerlin Gallery as part of the group show Repo Man in 2011. Three different sketches of Three Rock, an area of the Dublin mountains that once supported over one hundred stone quarries and is now the site of many radio masts and towers. Three Rock mountain is named after three large granite tors, or rocky outcrops, which were once believed to have been built as sacrificial altars.

A USB key embedded in a piece of granite donated by the last existing quarry, Murphystone, contains audio and images of recordings made with its proprietor, as well as selected recordings from numerous walks by the artist. Audio from a directional speaker above the stone played these recordings.
