Future Fossils, February 2023
Future Fossils is a story exhibition featuring relics from a speculative civilization. Using otherworldly living materials such as mycelium clay, mushrooms, bacterial cellulose and paper, we’ve created objects born of a human civilization inhabiting a new planet. Our work speculates the primitive mechanisms & materials that emerge from the interactions between human intelligence & foreign biology.

Only Cells: Histological Porn, November 2022
Waiting until the last human leaves the microscope suite, an indulgent
sigh of relief washes over the histologist, clutching a box of freshly stained
mouse organs. Once the image is focused, pupils fixate and respiration
deepens. A wave of arousal washes over the technician, for the cells that
compose us, multicellular organisms of infinite potential, are so
beautifully arranged. With magnification objectives to suit any biological
fetish a click away, zooming into cellular worlds is porn for a scientist on a
visual and existential bliss binge.
Anna Rock is an artist and scientist in Austin who dissects their curiosity
for aesthetics in physiology, existentialism, and corporeality through
photography, sculpture, and immersive installations.
