In his book Seeds of Contemplation, Catholic theologian Thomas Merton refers to spiritual sowing. The reader is the soil in which seeds are planted, and the reader’s spiritual life and relationship with God stands for the resulting harvest.

In adopting Merton’s title for this exhibition, Arturo Araujo, SJ, encouraged gallery visitors to be attentive to their own seeds of contemplation. Perhaps the most memorable part of this exhibition was the piece Walk As If You Are Kissing the Earth With Your Feet, a labyrinth installed on the gallery floor, made entirely of sunflower seeds.
