Judge's Comment: "One feels the sensation of fields of motion across glass or through space, with the effect of root-like structures reaching and anchoring into masses of amorphous shapes. This is interesting in light of the artist's concept of races of man mingling and merging and creates a sort of visual model for a hypothesis called 'punctuated equilibrium' — evolutionary development marked by isolated episodes of rapid speciation between long periods of little or no change."
