This piece shows a solitary man standing on the end of a set of platforms that lead up to a bright void inside a large dome. He is looking into this void wondering what will be next. It communicates the fear of the unknown that comes along with growing up and having to take the next step in life, knowing that this next move may be bright and exciting, while still being fearful of it.
“The future can seem so open and vast to the point where it can more closely resemble a void. When we can see the steps that we took to get to this place so clearly, the next step into the unknown can be petrifying.”
