After exhibiting up and down the eastern seaboard, Brooklyn-based sculptor Mark Andreas has crossed the East River to make his Manhattan debut. Andreas' Reactive Sculpture Series includes the hulking 400-pound Seed Spreader (pictured), an intimidating machine equipped with three-foot spinning blades. It brilliantly expresses the fear associated with the industrialization of mass food production that, in the words of the artist, “conceptually speaks to the lack of control consumers have over food production.”

Other works include Hanging In Balanceand Avian Reservoir, which also make poignant statements about the human race's precarious future given the ecological realities of a planet that's being taxed of its resources.
