Unfurling is a plant-like form that surrounds a lighted beaded seed pod. It explores and celebrates the process of psychological and spiritual growth and the awakening potential and possibility. The shape of this sculpture, an expanded geodesic icosahedron, is meant to express different stages of organic growth, from the 'nubescent', expanding, contracting, blooming, stretching out and transforming into new future.
