UK based Canadian designer, Vanessa Harden (b.1980) graduated from the Ontario College of Art in Toronto with her BDes in jewellery and metalsmithing. She has since been linked to various educational institutes, such as the MIT Media Lab, and Concordia University’s Hexagram Labs. Vanessa recently obtained her Masters degree in Design Interactions from the Royal College of Art in London.
This blog is dedicated to continuation of her project, “The Subversive Gardener” which explores various methods of disguising gardening paraphernalia in everyday attire and accessories, drawing on influences from militaria and spy gadgetry. Secretly dropping seed bombs on their way to work or planting flowers on their way home, these designs allow guerrilla gardeners to integrate their assaults into their everyday routine.
