To mark the life cycles of each plant, bronze buds, blooms and berries are positioned in descending order of growth. “The test-tube quality of the glass, combined with the ultra-realistic bronze plant life, references the uneasy relationship between science and nature. Each timeline points simultaneously downward, towards the earth and the past, and upward, towards the sky and future pursuits. If the present is an unfolding from the past and towards the future, these sculptures are like time-lines that captures the current moment by preserving what has come before and anticipating that the natural cycle will begin again.” (Bonansinga, p. 15)
