This variety of tropical seeds is characterized by its softness, but also its strength, impermeability and longevity. The seeds can survive long journeys in water, before settling and germinating on a distant shore.
I loved the poetry in this ecological journey: this genetic message carried by the waves like a bottle in the sea. So, the idea came to the fore of creating a net to transport, display and showcase these seeds without damaging them. This “seed-setting” protects the potential life of these fabulous seeds.
Like Ulysses attached to his ship’s mast to resist the siren song, these seeds will stay safe, snuggled in a necklace despite the call from the sea. It’s up to you to free them so they can deliver their message.
