A short children's story about Pit the sunflower seed and his trip around the world. The GuerillaGreen Initiative is a call to join forces with nature in it's subtle fight against enforced 'world order' in the urban surroundings, to loose control, go wild, create diversity, color and break through. During the opening of the TOLHUISTUIN seed balls (a self contained cluster of soil and different seeds) were spread by the public in a chaotic, fun manner using a catapult, a spinning 'pinata' & a water rocket. In Zaandam we followed the journey of pit, the sunflower seed. Together with kids of all ages we followed pits dreams, dilemmas and wonderful adventures. The story of pit invites us to take an active part in helping pit along his way. Through story, fantasy and active participation we tried to incorporate our ‘organic’ connection to the nature around us in our urban city lives. A COLLABORATION WITH SARON PAZ, JOSE SUBERO, ILLUSTRATED BY KELLY DE MEYER, COMMISSIONED BY THE TOLHUISTUIN AMSTERDAM & GEMEENTE ZAANDAM. Read Less
