Urban Seed: Sharing Stories In An Eco-Conscious Society
Public secret storytelling tradition inspires this small green movement.
Designer Ruedee Sarawutpaiboon’s Urban Seed is a new public play inspired by a public-secret storytelling tradition. Under this project, people are able to write their stories on bio-degradable cards filled with seeds and leave them for others to read. Like the seed that has been planted in their brain, another seed is planted via the card, which they can simply put on the ground, which will eventually turn it into a plant, thereby contributing to the environment.
The system has two options: analog and digital that will work together across telephones, public artifacts and cityscape.
