Age of the World is a perspective designed to freak us all out. Statistics quit charts and graphs to reincarnate in a curious set of jars, creating a radical representation of our human bondage in this world. Birth is the base and death the apex of these enamelled terra cotta pagodas, whose contours change in phase with the age rings that translate life expectancy. From bottom to top there are 100 strata, shaped in solid or void, but the top end is always a sharp tip.
