Description

In the evolutionary process every step forward is also a step back, every gain is a loss in some way. By questioning the new millennium and its technological revolution, analyzing how this affects our society’s evolutionary process, I became aware of the presence of an element that drives our existence towards evolution. In searching for this element, the catalyst of evolution, I have found Kubrick’s Space Odyssey 2001 as an important visual milestone that awakens our consciousness to perceive present reality as “The Key to Evolution”. The intention supporting this project is to question our present reality using art as an abstract language that will challenge people to find their own answers to the expositions presented in this visual experience.
