Seed Of The Void – by Seema Lisa Pandya 2016 is a public art sculpture made from Norwegian Maple wood (a locally invasive species) salvaged from fallen trees. The sculpture is inspired relationships between things, and that reality is not just composed of ‘things’ in and of themselves. The experienced red inner form 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″
