A stainless steel sculpture by Spanish artist Manuel Ferreiro Badia is now on display at Finn Park in Tribeca. The work, entitled  Compostela Fractal Study of a Shell is, according to NYC Parks, “based on origami studies and is composed of broken steel planes that cause the sculpture to change or live 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.”
