Use Your Cell Phone to Plant a SEED and Help Grow a Forest
An interactive art installation invites participants to use their cell phones to plant “seeds” to grow a virtual forest.
“SEED is the first cell-phone driven interactive installation whose purpose is to effect environmental change in the real world.
The ultimate goal of this evolving project is to buy a virtual tree seedling to plant in this installation; your cell phone provider will bill you, and the proceeds will be used to reforest certain endangered portions of our planet,” said Napoleon Brousseau, artist and founding member of the SEED Collective.
