ART IN THE PARKS PROGRAM

 

During the Summer and Fall months of 2022, New York’s Thomas Paine Park in Manhattan
will nurture Jaime Miranda-Bambarén’s public art installation 13 MOONS (Seeds)
[13 LUNAS (Semillas), in Spanish].

This monumental initiative will root into that public space
thirteen grand and textured wooden spheres,
each one of them sculpted out of single pieces of wood.

All the works involved originate in the systematic rescue of the remains of eucalyptus trees
illegally plundered in diverse points of the Peruvian territory.

The size of each Seed
varies between 180 and 230 cm (5,10” to 7,6”) in diameter.
Their specific weight goes from 800 kg to 5,000 kg (1,800 to 11,000 lbs.)
