Plankton has no country and no specific host. Constantly traveling, they blur the conceptions of alien and native, visible and invisible. The Wanderers is a small vessel which contains plankton. It is in the shape of a twenty-sided solid, known as an icosahedron. Icosahedra mirror the shape of certain radiolarians, single-celled waterborne plankton. This geometry is very effective for dispersal and movement in space, able to tumble freely through water and air. When a living organism lacks locomotion it becomes a drifter, a wanderer. Plankton comes from the Greek word for wanderer. Its etymology captures the nostalgia we feel for our planet from outer space. Pointing to travel and wanderlust, the sculpture’s form is a tiny representation of our enduring need for discovery through movement. Causing our oceans’ tides, the Moon, the final host of this sculpture, is directly stirring these drifters and carrying them around our planet.
