Description

According to the artist, the sculpture’s theme is “the relationship between geometric and organic form and it explores the nature of metamorphosis and evolution.” Versions of this sculpture have been created in a variety of media and can be found all over the world in public and private collections.

This particular sculpture was purchased by Shorenstein Properties LLC, and its selection seems inspired by FibroGen, a biotech company and the building’s current tenants. However, independent curator and art historian Leah Levy, who served as the public art advisor for the project, said the thematic connections between the sculpture and bio-tech company were purely coincidental.

“'I'm Alive’ has as its backdrop Mission Bay, so someone said it looked like a wave," Levy said. "There are a lot of options for understanding the piece."

Location

Up the steps between 409 and 499 Illinois Street, in a park overlooking the water
