Quilt of Humanity
There have been many events and people throughout history which have drastically changed the direction of Humanity. The question (which is very open to interpretation) is whether the change has improved or diminished humanity (and sometimes it might have done both). “Quilt of Humanity” is a 8’ x 8’ kiln-formed glass art installation that traces the history of humanity from the beginning to the present. Through 36 different glass panels, the installation examines the major events and people who have drastically changed the direction of humanity. The purpose of the installation is to encourage you to think about these events and people and your opinion of the outcome. The last panel, representing the future, is clear since the future is unknown.
