Germinating acorn . . Come visit! This sculpture and 26 others are touring the U.S. now through 2014. Over 25 larger-than-life sculptures created with nearly half a million LEGO pieces! Read more and come visit! This is a sculpture of an acorn as it begins its life as an oak tree, with leaves and shoots unfurling and reaching for the sun. It's over 5 feet tall and was built with 15,581 pieces. The sculpture was installed in April 2012 at Reiman Gardens in Iowa as part of my traveling exhibition, Nature Connects. In October 2012 it will travel to it's next location, so stay tuned for updates! Building it The sculpture took over 200 hours to design and build. Each piece is glued one-by-one and a steel armature helps keep the sculpture secured to the ground and sturdy in high winds. My assistant, Geoffrey, took the lead on the design and construction of this sculpture. LEGO sculptures are very difficult when they are either thin or horizontal, and the leaves in this sculpture are thin AND horizontal! Working around steel can be hard enough, a there were a lot of tricky challenges that Geoffrey overcame. And it makes for an excellent coatrack. The entire sculpture was assembled in my New York City art studio, then custom-crated in museum-quality exhibition crates for my new show, Nature connects, which is currently touring the United States.
