You never told me it was going to be like this

About

By taking a contemporary popular phrase (To infinity and beyond) and introducing it in a different context, this work is commenting on the status of art and its longevity. Symbolically the ladder represents progress, ascension, and passage through various levels of initiation. However, in this case the ladder also functions as a conduit between the wall and the light, intersecting the space to question our gradual acquisition of knowledge. The rungs of the ladder reflect and carry light through space and by doing so both absorb and transmit the literal meaning of the text.
