Colonization Device Floyd Elzinga

Through a consideration of the pine cone as a colonization device, Elzinga explores the nature of seeds and highlights their aggressive regeneration. This long, sleek pine cone is made from a steel that naturally rusts, producing an orange-brown surface over time, and allowing the sculpture to more closely resemble the object on which it was modelled.
