The Eco-Seed Sowing Machines are  solar powered structures that contain a large amount of flower seeds. Whenever evidence of environmental degradation is observed, a signal is sent to the various structures, and a small amount of flower seeds are automatically released onto the earth below.

Eco-Seed Sowing Machines are a symbolic public art response to environmental degradation caused by humanities naive and systematic destruction of our planet. These structures are located in various places around the world. Each is equipped with communication devices that receive information through the Internet. This information is monitored from groups like Earth Watch, who search the world  for evidence of environmental degradation.
