Can we use Seed as a tool to build collective futures?

I explore this question through food and agriculture that fosters cooperative community. I grow, harvest, and preserve Korean heirlooms in a Brooklyn community garden. My practice is an interactive journey spanning the plant’s whole lifecycle.

I also share my harvest as food, using the ritual of eating together to extend my practice and strengthen community. Last year I shared perilla leaf ice cream, straight from the farm. Designed as an interactive art and education project, the event used food as a way to connect with larger audiences.

To grow Korean heirlooms is to nurture individual microbiomes, stronger communities, and our shared climate future. My practice sparks conversations about food sovereignty and heritage, cultivating awareness, connection, and change.
