Manuel Ferreiro Badia

Manuel Ferreiro Badia, NSS has a piece on view in Queens, NY. His Compostela, a fractal study of a shell is part of the Art in the Parks program run by the NYC Department of Parks & Recreation. The installation took place on July 6, 2023 in Hunter’s Point South Park.

The sculpture is based on origami studies and is composed of broken steel planes that cause the sculpture to change and come to life with sunlight. It reflects in an abstract way the fractal system of matter, looking for a simplicity that reflects the interior of every being. It is a work inspired in the study of the nature, in particular of a shell: the volume is reduced to its fractal structure, to its geometry.
