On October 27th and 28th, SeedBroadcast traveled to Taos, New Mexico for the closing festivities of the Seed 4 exhibition and exploratorium and to collaborate on a Seed Story Broadcasting event with Seed 4. The Taos Seed exhibitions, now in their forth year, bring together artist, educators, local farmers, gardeners, and the public to investigate the power of seeds as a concept. In the gallery, a wide range of art explored the visual performance of seeds, current perspectives about bioengineering, and the magic of sculptural stratification and transformation.

The entire exhibition was filled with Seed Stories as visual and textural expressions. The statements written by participating artists provided a keen insight into the complex, personal, and powerful connections that people feel about seeds in form and process. During our Broadcast we met Peter Chinni, a local sculptor and participating artist in the Seed 4 exhibition, and he shared his seed story with us.

The Seed 4 organizers, Siena Sanderson, Mandy Stapleford, Katie Woodall, and Claire Cote put together a public celebration on October 28th, for the final weekend of the exhibition. They shared local seeds and food with everyone who stopped by. During this reception Claire and Katie took some time to share their seed stories with us.
