    This is a selection of letters written to a wheat grain that had been found in the straw as stuffi ng of a 133 year dead salt water crocodile shot at the mouth of the Serangoon river in Singapore in 1888. The letters and the grain were buried in Platåberget, adjacent to the Svalbard Global Seed Bank in 2019 as one part of a gesture by The Migrant Ecologies Project.
