HEAMIN KIM, DAYEA SUNG / seeds in the pen

HEAMIN KIM, DAYEA SUNG

This ballpoint refill is consisted of environment-friendly materials. After inserting a boundary line made of vegetable oil behind ink made of soybean oil, then putting in a variety of flower seeds in the ballpoint pen refill. Because this is made of starch, we can remove it from a used ballpoint pen and plant it in the yard. Our ballpoint pen refill can biodegrade and flower seeds in the ballpoint pen refill will become sprouts growing under the ground. The more you write with this refill, the more clearly you can read the language of flowers in the empty refill. From this moment forth, the refill will provide you with patience and romance
