Abstract: The performative act of seed sculpting and seed balling is meant increase public awareness of politics and responsibilities surrounding anthropogenic effects on the environment. Through the creation of public installation of sculptures made of organic local edibles, exotics and import species, the computer-aided landscape design of urban architecture was disrupted by the lab’s participants. The pedagogical goals of the lab were to:

 

1. aid in public understanding of the relationship between ecoart and the environment

2. implicate participants in anthropogenic ecological effects

3. take an active and hands-on tactical stance on these issues and help in public analysis of eco-activist risks and benefits

4. get beyond the feeling of being merely living props or ornaments inside the design aesthetics of the urban outdoors

5. comprehend the politics, the ease and the responsibilities involved in the intentional release of exotic, non-local and mutant species into our living world
