This gallery is dedicated to the growth and advancement of humanity. The pieces I have chosen all show some aspect of humanity's maturation, from architecture to culture. The contrast and color utilized sets the constructs apart from nature. Humanity has taken lessons from nature, but has moved forwards to the point that we, as a species, are able to alter our environments to suit our needs. Art is both a means of memorializing this progress, and a means of extending it through culture and creativity.
