Seed (large scale sculpture proposal)
Laser cut perspex lettering

‘Seed’ is a sculpture that takes the form of a cartoon rendering of a lightning bolt.

It is constructed from lettering formed from quotes by scientists across disciplines and eras - from Archimedes famous proclamation of ‘Eureka! I have found it’, via Newton’s comment on the nature of science as a cross generational enterprise, ‘If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of giants’ to Pasteur’s nod to serendipity with ‘Chance favours the prepared mind’ and the hearfelt observation by Crick that ‘It is notoriously difficult to define the word living’.
