The Michigan Research Studio/ArcPrep space typically introduces juniors in the Detroit Public Schools to architecture and urbanisms, but has been virtual since the onset of the pandemic.
According to Rock in an interview with Michigan News:
“Money Head is a staged photographic and performance series that explores the complex role of money in our lives — from its influence on those who lack it to those who abuse its power.”
The “Money Head” headpiece can be opened and closed. Inside the headpiece, Rock placed objects collected over the course of a few years. “These objects are placed around the staged photographic/performance scene. Some objects include: a copy of the Declaration of Independence, a stuffed animal in the form of cow, a small heart-shaped brick found from the original construction site of Detroit’s Q‑Line, and a “Money Head” doll I made.”
