Landform and sculpture showing a timeline extending from the far left. The dry water indicates Darwins Warm Little Pond and then the ribbon climbs the landform with the emergence of RNA, the Self-Replicator, the First Multitasker, etc. until it reaches the Ribosome and its decoding seat. As the epigenetic revolution underway argues, RNA controls gene expression, giving us some freedoms. This shift in thinking is symbolised in words and aluminium as the landform moves from RNA to DNA.
