Maple 2009 by Chris Kabel of the Netherlands for Guggenheim Museum's "Contemplating the Void"

Everything about this is engaging – the idea, the simplicity of its execution, the borrowing of a seed dispersal mechanism, the notepad, the fact that he uses materials provided by the Guggenheim to create the final product, that it’s kinetic, the citizen artist/collective participation part.  Botany in art = wonderful!
