The fullness of fruit is embodied in this work, which symbolizes the collective dreams of all humanity. Society draws on the energy of these dreams for motivation and collective development. The various openings represent spaces for the exchange of ideas. Each individual’s ideas are nutrients that keep the universe functioning. The surface extrusions are a reflection of the growth of the world. The network of lines connecting them are like blood vessels, crisscrossing and spreading throughout the whole. Everyone’s dreams are absorbed and blended in the blood to spread throughout the entity.

The different colors indicate dissimilar beliefs and actions. White serves as a base to make the absorbed nutrients stand out. The tiny branches seem to be spreading and flowing, signifying the colors blending with one another.
