Wallpaper: 100 Years of Seaweed & Kelp

Marine algae like seaweed and kelp help oxygenate the ocean, create habitat for other organisms, and form the base of a critical food web for life on Earth. This wallpaper represents a sample of seaweeds and kelp sourced over 100 years using the Algae Collection at University of California Santa Barbara. Created by Jennifer Parker with help from Anya Chytrowski and support from UCSC Arts Research Institute and the OpenLab Collaborative Research Center.
