'This book is a sequel to the 'EVERYBODY NEEDS A ROCK' project. While making the big collection of the self-made rocks, I felt the need to present and document my rocks in a book form: a book which is not merely a documentation of the project, but will start to take the form of a kind of new meneralogical encyclopedia. It aims to document and depict the self-made rocks with scientific accuracy, poetry and a sense of wonder. The book was produced in collaboration with a graphic designer Akiko Wakabayashi. In choosing to represent this project in a book form, we referenced the pocket-sized botanical encycropedia commonly used in Japan, which was made to carry around in the nature.'
