About This Piece

People who use the High Line Canal Trail at S. Colorado Boulevard and E. Hampden Ave. will notice a cluster of three large granite boulders on the west side of the underpass painted with brightly colored stripes depicting strata.

From the artist:
We Are Future Strata is symbolic of a post-human future where the man-made environment has become strata in stone. Comparing a geologic time scale with a human time scale reminds us of the temporary nature of existence. As Mary Oliver asked in The Summer Day, “Tell me, what is it you plan to do / With your one wild and precious life?”
