The Future, a series of data-driven sculptures by Alicia Eggert and Safwat Saleem, in collaboration with Fine Acts, is currently on display at the glorious Dallas Aurora. For the first time, there we are showing three sculptures that illuminate the overall state of peace, death penalty and marriage equality around the world.
The word "future" is written in Mandarin, Hindi and English using lightbulbs representing every sovereign state. The lights are lit for countries at peace, who allow same sex marriage and who have dropped the death penalty. The number of light bulbs suspended in the air corresponds to the total number of bulbs that remain unlit on all three signs, representing the potential for a brighter and more peaceful future.
Go and see the work if you are around!
