Inspired by sunflower patterns, Inflorescence is a sculpture for the University of Alaska, Anchorage's ConocoPhillips Integrated Science Building that will be installed in 2016. The mirror-polished stainless steel facets of each "seed", "atom" or "cell" create little individual paintings of the world, each one interpreting the same world around it, but each one unique in what it shows us. The sculpture encourages physical interaction with the piece. The viewer can walk directly inside the piece, seeing their own reflection multiplied hundreds of times. The interior becomes self-reflective - interpretations of interpretations. An interactive lighting program utilizing activity sensors is integral to the work.
