Building it

This sculpture contains 37,879 LEGO pieces and took my assistants Jung Ah and Arielle 325 hours to design and build.  Two copies were made over the course of 650 hours (5 months!).  The sculpture is built around a custom-welded metal armature and every LEGO piece is glued one-by-one.

This sculpture will now spend the next 6 years traveling to Botanical Gardens and Arboretums around the world as part of my Nature Connects exhibit.  Check out the schedule and see if it’s visiting you soon!
