Image of the Day: The Six Epochs of Life

 

EOL-Panorama-3-ft

The Six Epochs of Life are futurist's Ray Kurzweil’s interpretation of evolution from the Big Bang to the Singularity and, like the subject matter, the mural itself evolved over time. The path and flashes of light are meant to represent the meandering path of Evolution and the life force that drives it forward. There are also twenty infinity symbols in the mural, some are obvious, others are hidden.


The Six Epochs of Life mural was commissioned by Martine and Bina Rothblatt in the summer of 2008 to be painted on a bare concrete wall at Estate Marbina Abenaki’s Terasem Center of Critical Consciousness.
