The Endless Cycle of Humans Evolving and Devolving [VIDEO]

We know about human evolution, but do we know anything about how our species will devolve? In a thought-provoking piece, Argentinian art group DOMA created a kinetic sculpture that depicts the evolution and devolution of humans. The sculpture, entitled “Involucion Primate,” is made of silhouette figures representing each stage of evolution. Mounted to a belt in the proper order to portray our evolution and then in reverse order to map out our devolution, those figures move seamlessly on an endless loop. One by one they pass a flashing bulb in the middle. The effect: our development and regression seems to occur before our eyes.
