The 6,000-Day Canvas: Humanity's Real-Time Journey to 2030

The Grapevine Wall is an ambitious art project by Craig Tilley, spanning 6,000 days from July 29, 2013, to January 1, 2030. This evolving artwork consists of 386 interconnected pieces called VINES, created on a cube-shaped canvas.

Every month, Tilley adds two new VINES, each influenced by current events, gradually building a visual narrative of humanity's journey. The project aims to chronicle our collective experiences and challenges as we approach what Tilley terms "the Great Transition.

When completed on New Year's Eve 2030, the Grapevine Wall will form a massive infinity cube, offering a unique perspective on our shared story and potential future.
