This Spencer Lawson exhibit puts a sci-fi spin on the concept of harvesting organic goods. The metalsmith used construction metals to create organic forms that remind the viewer of vegetables, plants and fruit. Lawson envisions a future in which scientists could cultivate such metals for use in construction just as gardeners cultivate crops for culinary use.

Implications - The rise of the green movement has introduced environmentally conscious artforms that explore the role of nature in construction. Spencer Lawson explores this relationship and the balance between the organic and the metallic materials in contemporary society.
