Collective Efforts on River
A "found art" sculpture by Matthew Davis consisting of stacked rocks and sticks. The myth is that the sculpture began as a way to get over painful breakup with his then girlfriend. The sculpture evolved as visitors formed a connection with the original project and began to add their own contributions in the form of similarly arranged stones found at eastern river's edge of Belle Isle. Some of the individual rock sculptures depict human forms. Some rock collections display an inscription to a loved one. Nevertheless, in its entirety, the result of what was once a scattered collection of river side rocks now forms the aggregate of a sculpture depicting a harmonious social structure.
