Responding to a site in the Mohave Desert, CA, used by military personnel and
others as a shooting range — often of obsolete technology — “Wildflower Sound
Cannon,” reintroduced native California species flowering plants into the landscape.
Volunteers prepared seed bombs using local mud and soil, subsequently launched
by canon. Documented by video, photography, and audio recording, this
environmental experiment aimed to spread knowledge of the region’s plants and
biota and encourage a more lasting sense of connection to this desert landscape. In
the spring, many of the native species seed bombs bloomed.
