Ascension Project

ASCENSION PROJECT: UNIVERSITY OF NEW HAVEN, NEW HAVEN, CT

The Ascension series is an ongoing project to inspire a vision of hope and collective aspirations in our world of apathy and competitive isolationism. The perception of upward motion in each piece presents a dichotomy between the potential for collective aspiration and the realities of the competitive struggle to achieve individual greatness.

There have been numerous iterations of the original idea since the project’s inception in 2004 and each piece has taken on it’s own unique form and context based on my experience of environmental and social influences at the time of creation.
