Artist Deedee Morrison specializes in large public works made of aluminum, steel, limestone, Lucite and solar powered light. Her latest installation, the Seed-Pod, was recently erected in Chattanooga, Tennessee’s Renaissance Park in partnership with Publict Art Chattanooga.
Seed-Pod consists of eighty-four aluminum and colored Lucite panels, laser cut and re-fabricated to create an eye-catching solar sculpture. The 8ʼ x 12ʼ Seed-Pod design was inspired by Deedee’s study of organic forms and the geometric principles that determine their patterns and structures.
Seed-Pod is a visual display of the power and energy thatʼs available every day from a single solar panelʼs relationship with the sun. The color scheme of the Seed-Pod sculpture mirrors the vibrant yellow hues of the sun. Adjacent to the Seed-Pod sculpture is an 18ft. solar tower that, like plants, collects and stores the energy released from the sun.
