The title refers to the transformation that rocks go through via heat, pressure, or other natural agencies. In this case, the artist is mimicking the process with furniture by shipping items over and over again and reconstructing the damage they face during the process. They are initially created with a soft material that will easily damage, each man-made flaw reconstructed with something more durable. Each piece becomes more resilient through repair.
