Community, 2014

Community was inspired by the organic matrix of a light-conducting, deep-sea sponge. This resilient life-form contains a menagerie of organisms that depend on the sponge for light and habitat. Shaped by the relationship with its inhabitants, each organism develops in symbiosis, creating a micro-environment where the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. As a metaphor for United Way, the elegant lines of the artwork reference the interconnections between people and resources within the community, each supporting one another, as the form reaches out and up towards the light.
