~ 'For you are dust, and to dust, you shall return' ~ Genesis 3:19

This specific passage of the Genesis, speaks about how the certainty of death should serve us as a reminder to remain humble in life. Within my agnostic interpretation, it is more of a call for a sustainable, ethical and mindful way of life.

3:19 is a chronological conjecture, a reflective proposition about the future, and a speculative evaluation of our present. Rocks symbolize the unavoidable progress of time, like dust clusters containers to millennia of evolution. Despite we think of them as immutable objects, rocks are time-based generative organisms. Depicting eras of existence through colorful layers assembled in complex and captivating patterns serves as a 'live' reminder that, no matter how much we avoid thinking of the future, it will, eventually, catch up with us.

Despite being capable of generating thousands of combinations via color and shape, only 19 iterations will ever see the day of light, remaining the rest voided in the obliviousness of time. Since after all, let's not forget, we are all dust, and to dust, we will return.

artist display notes
This project has been tone mapped using an ACES Filmic curve and optimized to render optimally across multiple displays, devices, and color profiles. However, brightness might need to be slightly adjusted based on displays and/or external light conditions. As a visual queue, the background should have an extremely faint volumetric halo. To render correctly, WebGL will have to be enabled and shaders will need to support high precission. This could cause some differences across browsers. Quality can be toggled using the keyboard's numbers to increase/decrease quality: 1. Should render smoothly on virtually any device 2. Should render OK on most devices 3. Medium quality ( default ) 4. Increased quality, might feel 'choppy' in older devices 5. Perceptually lossless, most devices will struggle to run this quality 6. Max res. Only very high-end devices with sophisticated GPUs will be able to run at this setting. Toggle antialias on and off pressing the key 'A' on your keyboard. ( Antialias will slow down render times ). Navigate time using 'left' and 'right' arrows on your keyobard.
