"Lifecycle" is about finding beauty and hope in our constant state of change – whether it comes by choice or by chance. The manzanita stems in this installation were altered forever by the Carr Fire, but the heat of the fire also stimulated seeds dormant in the soil, producing new life. Baskets were salvaged from homes lost in the fire. In combination, they symbolize transformation and transition within natural and human communities as well as their interconnection, which is so much part of life.
