We are all descendants of our ancestors, but to us, our ancestors are “Ascendents”.  This sculpture represents the foundation our past relatives have set for us to build upon. The rusty center of this sculpture symbolizes our ancient relations, worn and weathered, but withstanding the test of time. The new colorful forms whirling around and rising above this core symbolize us, the current generations inhabiting the earth.  In these modern times of technological advancements and cyber communication, it is important for us to look back upon our ancestors for hints on how to stay human in a world that seems to be pulling us ever closer to a robotic existence… the Singularity.
