Designed as a symbolic public art in response to environmental degradation, the Eco-Seed Sowing Machines by Michael Jantzen are solar powered structures that contain a large amount of flower seeds. Whenever evidence of environmental degradation is observed, a signal is sent to the various structures, and a small amount of flower seeds are automatically released onto the earth below.
Addressing the environmental degradation caused by humanities naive and systematic destruction of our planet, these structures are located in various places around the world. Each is equipped with communication devices that receive information through the Internet. This information is monitored from groups like Earth Watch, who search the world for evidence of environmental degradation.
