This series titled "Monoliths" explores interstellar rock formations with cantilever architecture built into them. As landscapes are in flux and the world is perpetually changing, these objects represent something eternal in our lives. Utilizing modern essentialist compositions to build their reductive structure, these monumental boulders and ephemeral moments are as old as creation itself. They act as markers in time, a call to experience the present moment and to acknowledge that human beings are on this earth for a short period of time. I am focused on issues that reflect on humanity's shared existential crisis. I hope that this work makes an effort to focus on making connections because of our limited time on this planet. Because of our limited time on this planet, I hope that this work makes an effort to focus on making connections between human beings and our place in the cosmos. We are such a small portion of the universe that I want to show how our lives are both meaningless and at the same time monumentally important.
