There is a plastic fruit netting used to attach the rocks to the center of the work that has become brittle, likely due to fluctuations in temperature and humidity. The brittle netting has broken in places from the weight of the rocks and needs to be repaired. An additional, “invisible” support net will be created to support the weight of the rocks. Also, the current hanging system needs to be assessed to ensure it will not cause damage to the work and adequately distributes its weight when on display.
