Fertility can be understood as the space and propensity for growth. The most unlikely of things must conspire to create something unexpected. A deceptively small, almost unknowable thing can take root and flourish into something far more complex and unpredictable from its inauspicious beginnings. A thought can grow into a revolution, an encounter into a relationship. It all begins with a seed.

To describe this process FLUX presents Zoa, an installation that unfolds in three parts: a beautiful, elegant, translucent structure inspired by seed pods; an awe inspiring mid-week burn; and the revealing of an unexpected sculpture hidden within that comes alive with interactive fire.

Our work speaks to the idea of a fertile ground as a platform for unpredictable outcomes. Zoa awaits ideal conditions to grow and germinate, in very much the same way it needs nourishment for its transformation. Surrounded by potential and creative energy, the sculpture transforms, shedding the very barrier that once protected it. 

Zoa emerges, free to engage with the world in a new form. Conceived, designed and crafted in a community that makes an environment for art to abound, Zoa creates its own environment - a thing of imagination, a space of interaction, a moment of wonder and reflection, a beautiful state of flux.
