On Display at Bedford Gallery: Ned Kahn’s “Seed Vortex”
Thu. Jan 11, 2018 - Sun. Mar 25, 2018$3 - $5
WALNUT CREEK – Behold Seed Vortex, a massive, thought-provoking sculpture that examines the concepts of chaos and human interaction. Weighing thousands of pounds and measuring over 20 feet in diameter, sculptor Ned Kahn’s creation was inspired by his time as an artist-in-residence at the Exploratorium in San Francisco. While there, he focused on Physics of the Granular State, the field of science that explores the way powders, sand and other dry, particulate materials move. He aims to illustrate how the actions of something as small as a seed can influence the greater whole and hopes his work will be seen as a powerful metaphor for social and political change.
