The Golden Seed is an installation consisting of a living apple tree inside an improvised grow chamber - a timber-framed construction with reflective foil walls, a grow-light and fans; nearby are five cast gold seeds. A text accompanies the installation either as a printed booklet, audio recording or live reading by the artist.

Stemming from research concerning contemporary bio-science, genetic modification and modern farming methods, the work reflects on the difficult questions raised by the power offered by science combined with human fallibility, greed and obsession.
