Let's Not Leave it to chance, 2011
Seeds, something so small and innocuous on the surface, contain thousands of years of evolutionary history and are essential to human survival. The practice of saving seeds speaks to the importance of individual action in sustaining life. Let's Not Leave it to Chance asks us to consider what we have inherited and what we hope to pass on to future generations. At the heart of this work is imagery inspired by the practice of cultivating and saving heirloom seeds.
