Seed Of The Void - by Seema Lisa Pandya 2016 is a public art sculpture made from wood slabs of of Norwegian Maple (a locally invasive species) salvaged from the NYC Parks Department stock pile of fallen trees that gets turned into mulch daily. The sculpture is inspired by an exploration of form and the boundary between things and the notion that reality exists only in the relationships between things, and is not composed actually of ‘things’ in and of themselves. To this end, this piece creates the appearance of egg shaped form inside the piece that is neither just solid positive space, nor just carved out void space. This relationship is celebrated by highlighting the shared boundary edge between the negative and positive space with light and color. First installed at Prospect Park Brooklyn 3'-0" x 3'0" x 5'-0"
