2008 Art on the River Sculpture Prelude
Stephanie Sailer - Iowa City, Iowa
This sculpture is based on the seed pod of a false blue indigo flower, native to Iowa. All life must start from such a simple point, a seed. Cells gather together creating blueprints for the life to come. In my work, seed pods serve as a beautiful metaphor for new beginnings. Every fresh experience or new door we walk through is a moment marked by limitless possibilities, similar to a seedpod before it opens.
