SEED OF IMAGINATION traces the history of human migration from East Africa. The fascinating legacy of these ancient monumental journeys is shared through visual art, journal entries, and intuitive reflections on travel and research. In recounting her decade-long creation of an installation of mixed media artworks, LiDoña Wagner invites you to explore your own deep ancestry, migration as a timeless reality, and human impact on our amazing planet.
Based on genetic research carried out by National Geographic and Wagner's own deep ancestry, the text structurally reflects the DNA helix: two stories curving and turning throughout the narrative. The bridge between these collective and individual forays into the unknown is formed by stunning paintings, sculptures, poems, and photographs. This beautiful art book with a social message is a perfect gift for anyone who has wondered, "where do I come from?".
