The Tectonic Wanderer is an art exchange which explores how people can continue the ancient tradition of commoning, where resources (from forests and artworks to software) are collectively shared over time.

Each Wanderer is a one-of-a-kind artwork co-created with the consent of the granite rock population of British Columbia, Canada by artists Dr KitKat and Christina Gibson using upcycled materials. Having emerged from the earth’s crust 100 million years ago, the Wanderers invited 35 guardians around the world to take them on their everyday journeys. When their time together has come to an end, each Wanderer is passed on.

You can follow along with the current cohort of Wanderers via #TectonicWanderer on social media, and using the map above. Not a guardian yet, but would like to become one? Get in touch here. Let’s wander the world!


This is a not-for-profit public art project brought to life by some of the folx involved in Studio We & Us. New ideas and collaborations always welcome!
