An illuminating metaphor, doing double duty as a chandelier.The shape echoes forms recurring through time in the transport of information and energy. It can be seen as a ship, an airplane, a seed following currents from continent to continent; a spacecraft navigating the galaxies. Within the Seed are various “containers” holdingexchangeable elements from many cultures, mounted upon a DNA double helix which contains the building code for life on another vessel– planet Earth. We’re all in the same boat, and though we may eventually send our genetic code to other worlds, this planet has nurtured our evolution and it needs our constant protection…we cannot let it spring a leak!
