PROJECT TYPE Critical Design / Environmental Product

Inspired by the Victorian era, this collection of artefacts uses the aesthetic of the 19th century to imagine a past with guerrilla gardeners. How would the victorians have masked the illicit sowing of seeds? Had it been as underground then as it is today, guerrilla gardener would have needed secret ways of distributing plants and flowers. This family of products investigates the accessories worn by men and women and transform these into clandestine gardening tools. These products are based around the seedpill - a newer version of the seed bomb, which combines the efficacy of the seed bomb with a cleaner, smaller and more discreet design.

Many things grow in the garden that were never sown there.
