David McCracken’s infinite stairway to heaven
Humanity has always focused on reaching the skies, surpassing its capabilities, and focusing on growth more than ever. And that’s what David McCracken tries to showcase with his new piece named Diminish and Ascent. This sculpture was previously located at Bondi Beach in Sydney, Australia. It’s an eye-catching piece because it offers you a great way to visualize how you get to reach the skies in a meaningful way.
What makes it special?
What makes this sculpture so interesting is that it’s a stairway whose stairs get smaller and smaller as you reach the top. It signifies how hard it is to stay at the top of our society. It also does a perfect job when it comes to simulating the illusion of an infinite stairway, a way for us to reach the utmost levels in our lives in a creative manner.
