'e-SEED' is a work by Iven Henriques

The e-SEED is a seed that uses electrical energy to stimulate its growth. The electrical energy is provided by synthetic photosynthesis. The e-SEED is a tiny timelapse in the photosynthesis evolution: from the robust first blue-green bacteria that created the early oxygenic atmosphere on Earth to a complex high plant in the form of a seed. Encapsulated into a bio-solar cell boosting its development, the seed brings hope on lifeless grounds.


e-SEED was developed in collaboration with scientists Vincent Friebe, Sandrine D’Haene and Raoul Frese from the Biophysics department – VU Amsterdam, intership student Emiel Gilijamse.
