In January 2013 Design Academy Eindhoven organized an exhibition aboutfood especially addressed to children. In collaboration with Jie Chen, Chia Wang and Beate Snuka, we designed a seed bomb machine. Seed bombs consist of little blocks of clay containing seeds and soil.The idea is to throw this little ball in your garden, and observe the herb sand plants growing.
To communicate efficiently about healthy food and vegetables, we chose to design a little workshop, rather than a classic explanatory exhibition. All the steps of making a seed bomb are located on the table, and children go from the raw materials, to final product in a line. Making these tools and seeing happiness of young children was very instructive. There is now a little army of green terrorists around Eindhoven!
