I Walk Along This Earth, Therefore I Dream

I Walk, Therefore I Dream by Sophia Sobers
Commissioned by the 195 Redevelopment District, “I Walk Along This Earth, Therefore I Dream” is a temporary art installation on the cusp of a service road to two major highways, composed of 5 large plywood and plexiglass structures with plants growing at the top. Inspired by organic forms in nature, these objects are symbolic representations of the redevelopment of the land and new growth.  I Walk developed from my vision to create odd objects which seem to be growing out of the land and supporting new life. The patterning is inspired by L-Systems, which I then translated onto skins of these sculptures and fabricated at AS220 on their CNC machine.
