artist statement

1 a flowering plant's unit of reproduction, capable of developing into another such plant.

Here "seed" may likewise suggest itself as being the reproductive unit of some multilevel reinforced concrete construct.

One may imagine it being sown and beginning to grow where it now rests, into another quick glass-clad monolith, a shopping centre or a car park perhaps.

“GROWTH!” is what the new priests and their many seem to so relentlessly chant.

“At what cost?” a few dare ask.
