Victor Seaward: Spicy Fruit, Twin Fruits, Bobby Fruit
2021 | enamel on 3D printed PETG | South Colonnade Lamposts (exterior) | Art Map reference: C28-C30
Taking the form of imagined phantasmagorical fruits, these three artworks by Victor Seaward function simultaneously as aesthetic sculptures and functional bird nests. The nests are sculpted using digital software and fully 3D printed in a durable material called PETG, before being painted in enamel. Conceived to attach to trees and blend in with the seasonal foliage, the sculptures have been designed in accordance with RSPB guidelines to ensure a safe and comfortable environment for nesting.
