The Industrial Evolution Lighting Collection is an imaginative and dark projection of a post apocalyptic future where the human species has lost control over what it had previously manufactured. The products of industry that were formally used as vital pieces in the construction of the human’s built environment are now alive and have begun to assemble, grow, and think independently from their original creator. Evolution is rapidly taking place. Fruit or larva is present, indicating that they are now capable of reproducing. Bio-luminescent features activated only in response to human touch have been discovered. Although a strong exoskeleton is apparent in all forms, cantilevered limbs and extensions suggest the presence of either a rooted substructure and vehicle to acquire sustenance or an additional internal structural or balancing system.
Towering in at over eight feet tall, The Tree of Souls is the most developed and imposing life form found to date in The Industrial Evolution Collection. Extending vertically, initially from six different points of contact, the twisting and converging structure provides a stable center core allowing the limbs, which carry the four large life bearing nodes, to diverge and spread out.
