Engraved paper with pastel
6 panels, each 30" x 22"

The letters F, U, T and E are each engraved on a piece of paper. Two panels without letters separate the T and the E. In the background, a sunrise or sunset spans all six panels. Just as the sky indicates either the beginning or end of the day, the letters could spell either "future" or "futile." The viewer must decide whether the image suggests the promise of tomorrow or an apocalyptic end.
