Lindsay Lawson's practice is a supple amalgamation of an array of media. She has developed a type of situational process involving contracts, correspondence and interpersonal exchange that the she calls Arrangements. "The Real Smiling Rock Last Updated 11-06-2015" is the latest version of a living document recording an Arrangement between the artist, and eBay seller named, and the digital presence of a rock he is selling on eBay.
