Trilobites, extinct giant arthropods, are featured in this piece about the beginnings of life. Thanks to sturdy exoskeletons, trilobites are plentiful in the fossil record and have played an important role in the sciences.
In this piece, these “fundamental” trilobites are used symbolically in a sculptural representation of origin tales told worldwide. In many of these stories, life seemingly originates from a central point and emanates outward across the earth.
