Garden of Defence

2013, The Netherlands, Design Academy Eindhoven

'Garden of Defence' is a DIY guideline for making ones own seasonal self defence spray, using common garden plants such as Oleander, Calla Lily or Pine needles. With the legality of pepper spray in EU countries being estab- lished based on its use and context, this project challenges the fact that anything can be a weapon (even a plant). Once the seasonal spray is made it can be stored in a portable terracota grenade or in a download- able 3D printed spray jar top.
