A sleek and eco-friendly sowing machine stands in the fields of the East, West, South and North US. Eco-Seed Sowing Machines are Michael Jantzen’s environmental statement to the issue of environmental exploitation.

Whenever and wherever there is environmental degradation, these flower seed-filled structures would be signaled and sent to the location in need. The eco-seed sowing machine is programmed to automatically dispense small amounts of flower seeds into the Earth. This public art response attempts to contrast the scenic harm caused by humans. Jantzen purposely situated these structures in various places around the world. They are like watch guards, protecting and replenishing.

Each sowing machine is equipped to send and receive information. In an advanced world, environmental groups like Earth Watch would monitor these machines to keep the planet safe.
