“Facing West” is an interactive sculpture that invited the community to participate in the making of the piece, through responsible inclusive violence. It consists of a monolith made of steel and wood, with a polished aluminum mirror face, along with a small mountain of crushed granite fist sized stones. Kukec provided a warning and detailed instructions to be read and understood by those who choose to participate in the mark-making. Only after reading and signing a legal disclosure, were the participants allowed to enter the space and throw stones. Kukec was the first to throw a stone at the reflective mirror, and over the course of a few weeks the community completely erased the reflective surface and rendered it a pock marked abstraction.
