seed that’s been laser-etched via a patented process, revealing the word ‘love’.  After a couple of days of TLC, the seed coat falls + the word ‘love’ is revealed on the inner cotyledon or embryo.  First yellow, it then turns green with sunlight.  After turning green, the seed starts to crack open, revealing a leaf aimed for something higher with the word ’love’, as seen below.

But it doesn’t stop there kids – this gift keeps on giving.  After plant matures, once relocated into a large pot or ground, the plant will start to flourish super fast.  This ‘message bean plant’ eventually not only continues to grow with you but it will stand as a symbol of love for many more years to come.  Like many of Yoko’s art objects, less already results in more and this is definitely no exception.

Available at Serpentine Gallery for purchase.
