Native Seed Bomb Workshop is taking place at NYC Resistor on Sun, May 12. Tickets are available on Eventbrite.

Let’s make seed bombs using native plants appropriate to NYC’s urban landscape!

There’s a lot of pavement in our city. To support a healthy ecosystem, we need to make the most of anywhere that things can grow. Sometimes those places are out of reach, and seed bombs are are an efficient way to get helpful plants growing in ‘unused’ spaces like vacant lots, street dividers, and subway cuts.

We’ll consider New York’s unused growing areas, plants that can grow in them, and what the plants can do, such as supporting pollinators and remediating the soil.

Then we’ll each select seeds appropriate for our particular nefarious plans and make our own seedbombs!

It is Mother’s Day, so this workshop has multiple ways it coincide with the holiday: Celebrate Mother Earth! Honor your own Mom-ness! Bring your mom along! Memorialize a mom no longer with us! Avoid a mom from whom you’re estranged! Give seed bombs to a mom as a present!

Unnatural Biospheres at Tonight’s Interactive Show

Olivia Barr and Kari Love will debut their Unnatural Biosphere’s at tonight’s Interactive Show:

Unnatural Biospheres are visual contrasts held in double chamber glass vessels.  Each environment is expanding and paired based on reactive elements or growth patterns of crystals, plants and microorganisms. Bioluminescence, thermal stimulation, and conductivity are explored in these environments.

 
Glow vessel contains ZnS copper chloride-doped monoammonium phosphate crystals on the interior chamber while sheathed with bioluminescent protista on the exterior. And they both glow.
 
CuSO4 vessel activates copper sulfate in both chambers.  The interior deploys an electrochemical process to grow copper crystal and the exterior floats a plastic seed to cultivate blue vitriol.
 
Additional biospheres include Thermal Vessel, Popcorn Magic Vessel, Sweet Bait Vessel, and more.
 
The collection of vessels is inspired by enclosed ecosystems, artificial biospheres, and symbiosis.  Their reactions and relationships between “organisms” are contrived and never exist in the natural world.
 
We introduce the relationships, but the ongoing growth is uncontrolled.
