From Artists Space press release:
Energia is a living sculptural installation by Robert Gero.  Gero combines nearly pure chemical elements with organic material such as seeds and living plants.  His installations demonstrate a command of mass and space reminiscent of Brancusi while incorporating a philosophical sensibility of their own.   Energeia incluces over 100 individual sculptures creating a total environmental experience.  The title is from the Greek term meaning "actuation of life."

The exhibition was accompanied by a brochure with reproductions of the artist's work and an essay by Buzz Spector.
