The Colour Green
The Colour of Green

The Young Welcome Centre, Evergreen Brick Works
This metal panel is embedded within the welcome desk in The Young Welcome Centre at Evergreen Brick Works. The pattern interprets chloroplast, which are organelles found in plant cells that conduct photosynthesis. Chloroplasts capture light energy, store it in the energy storage molecules and uses it in the process of photosynthesis to make organic molecules and free oxygen from carbon dioxide and water. To present the chloroplast pattern is to depict a sacred process that makes all carbon base life forms possible on earth. For me, to interpret chloroplast is to celebrate “green” and by extension, a process that makes life possible on earth.
