SEED is an object to be hung on the wall incorporating tiny plants as the emphasis. SEED comes in several variations of profile and surface texture. Every profile is taken from different river stones’ shape that is a end result of a extended smoothing process the stones go by way of in water flow of the river, evoking the sense of connection with the physical force in nature.

It is manufactured of fast drying cast concrete using the Tyvek as the mold. Tyvek is first crinkled to create a certain crease pattern and stretched within the cutout profile. Concrete mix is poured with about 5mm – 8mm thick whilst the center of the Tyvek is slightly lifted to make a hole in the center according to the crease pattern of Tyvek. The resulting crease patterns of the concrete surface resemble the topological pattern a single sees in satellite pictures of all-natural landscape.

The container part of the soil for the plant is connected in the back, lifting the concrete tile about 2cm to four.5cm from the wall, providing the presence of the tile floating in front of the wall. Technically any plant that can fit within the hole can be utilised, even though, in these pictures, different kinds of succulents have been used. The blend of diverse profiles can create distinct configurations and visual impact on the wall.
