Nuclei consists of seven sculptures. The forms evoke nuclei—archetypal structures in physics, biology, anatomy, and astronomy. These spherical forms are present in life networks, such as cells and seeds. The artwork expresses growth, transformation, and the universal cycles of energy and matter. The sculptures invite human engagement by providing a place to rest integrated within these cycles.
