convergence is an earth art installation exploring the idea that all humans are created equal. The project consists of three holes dug into the earth. These holes symbolize the graves of all humanity—mothers, fathers, and children. In death, we all return to the earth no matter who we are, how much money we have, or what kind of lives we live. Solar-powered orbs in each hole represent the soul and illuminate every day at dusk.

Part of the Crayon Portraiture. project.
