About Final Passage:
“Final Passage” a sculpture with the elements (summary)

Final Passage

Connecting all forms of creation evolved and inspired with the elements
that gave them food, energy and faith. It is symbolic
of the beginning to life lived and renewal.

Imagine the Tree of Life meets the River Styx standing brilliantly in the desert shimmering with 5 branches, each holding a small flame in a tall glass chimney, surrounded by sparkling leaves. Standing 22 feet tall, this beautiful monochromatic tree will shimmer in the glowing light from the 5 flames; one on each limb. (After burning man the flames may be removed and fitted with electrical lighting unless otherwise)

The final construction will result in an art piece with a lot of texture and it will use light in a lot of ways to amplify the concept, either by the light generated by the piece itself of from any natural ambient light.
