Transcendence is the act of release, change of state and transformation beyond the physical. Transcendence is sublime. Its nature may not be seen, but it is strongly felt. To experience the sublime is to transport oneself into a boundless atmosphere. The chemical process of sublimation is what initially inspired this piece. Sublimation is defined as the transition of a substance from the solid to the vapor state. This is what we imagine transcendence to be: a change from something material to immaterial, and in some sense metaphysical. With it being a very personal experience, we wanted the piece to loosely depict self-transcendence through the simulation of a human figure.
