Sookkyung Park believes that one small seed is the source, from which a new living organism is born. This work was created to convey the notion that we always live with hope and our lives will bear abundant fruit just as the roots of a plant grow endlessly. Using white traditional paper, viewers can clearly see how the paper textures are interconnected. This is to show how the roots of a tree are connected to each other.

In addition, the jellyfish shape, which is made of numerous thinly cut papers in rainbow colors emphasizes the message of hope like a flower seed that spreads far. Small origami lotus flowers made in different colors represent the diversity of our community, just as everyone in the Greater Community lives in harmony with each other in order to strike a balance. Each form is connected with silk thread to create a moving sculpture.
