Ned Kahn: Seed Vortex
January 11 - March 25, 2018
Exploring the intersection of art and physics, Ned Kahn's enormous metal sculpture shifts a transient sea of tiny mustard seeds in a slow, constant, and captivating spin. Weighing thousands of pounds and spanning 23 feet in diameter, Seed Vortex addresses life's puzzles: eternity, unity, chaos, and change. A MacArthur Fellow who lives and works in the Bay Area, Kahn has placed numerous public artworks around the world, including Wind Fins at Walnut Creek's Neiman Marcus. This solo show includes several other sculptures by Kahn, many of which are "hands-on" and participatory
