Sharing its name with a Flannery O’Connor short story, this installation and story title derive from the writings of French paleontologist and theologian Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, whose conception of an “omega point” led him to exhort: “Remain true to yourself, but move ever upward toward greater consciousness and…love! For everything that rises must converge.”

Omega Point—found objects, plastic, steel, constructed cardboard shoes, collage, and gold-leaf—centers on a lifelong interest in holy spaces and museums as places of refuge. This installation invites the viewer into sacred space and contemplation.
