In China, naturally formed rocks called "jiashanshi" are collected in pantheistic reverence of creation and the cosmos. For the past two decades, Chinese artist Zhan Wang has been replicating these forms in stainless steel. Sometimes monumental in scale, the artist's "artificial rocks" explore the nexus of nature, industry and artifice.
