David McCracken-2 David McCracken-1 David McCracken Endless Stairway to Heaven David McCracken The Endless Stairway to Heaven is a sculpture by David McCracken in Australia. The author himself called his creation Decrease and Ascend. The original sculptural composition in Australia, located on the coast of the ocean and is a set of steps cast from aluminum, which look like a staircase extending into the sky. The installation was created as part of an annual event known as Sculpture by the Sea in Bondi. A peculiar aspect of the sculpture is an optical illusion that is created when contemplating it from a certain angle. Upon first glance, the staircase appears to have no end, stretching through the atmosphere. According to the author’s idea, the exposition should demonstrate the infinity of human possibilities.
