Entry Description: Based on Piet Mondriaan's triptych "Evolution" only my thoughts behind the work are quite the opposite. I don’t believe in human kind being able to act as a spiritual society as a whole. We become too polluted by money and power. It is my belief that one day this will cause the ruin of mankind as we know it.

Story: Based on Piet Mondriaan's triptych "Evolution" only my thoughts behind the work are quite the opposite. I don’t believe in human kind being able to act as a spiritual whole. We become too polluted by money and power. “Devolution” as I see no hope for humankind because they are so susceptible to the so called “Seven Sins”. "Birth" stands for the beginning, the unpolluted mind. "Narcist" stands for being corrupted by life itself as in money and feelings of power with yourself in the middle. "Ruin" stands for the end. The images are made using the wet plate collodion process to emphasize the humanly flawed nature.
