Abstract

Although evolution is a natural occurrence that is shared by many genetically different organisms, it is evident that homo sapiens have emerged as the most cognitively developed species – one that knows other beings better than they know themselves. Our species is known for discovering and studying the Earth and its life forms.“Dripping Evolution” elaborates on the theme of evolution and ties it to the biological concept of genetics. While the colorful laboratory flasks signify the organization and detail of human research and experimentation, the splatter of each flask’s contents along with the stopwatch draw on the idea that evolution is not at all up to the human race, but rather the randomness of nature and the concept of time itself.
