This seemingly never-ending staircase installation by David McCracken offers a visual interpretation of the concept of infinity. The art piece entitled 'Diminish and Ascend' was a part of the Bondi Beach Sculpture by the Sea exhibition in Australia. The annual event takes place in various locations around the continent, including Cottesloe and Aarhus, and showcases the work of Australia's best and most unconventional sculptors.

This piece by David McCracken appears to be constructed from concrete and juts forward into the sky. To achieve the infinitive effect, it tapers into an extremely sharp point, making it a dangerous task to attempt to climb. From afar, the installation also resembles a horn poking out from the Earth, resulting in a post-apocalyptic architectural feel.
