Getting to Know Algae: Creating Artworks with Seaweed & Kelp
On display during Salmon Week at the Seymour Discovery Center in Santa Cruz, California, May 18 through July 31, 2022. The show shares the beauty of kelp that provide food and shelter for species that in turn support salmon. We explore wrack as a shared space for research and creative practice which includes a series of digital prints, wallpaper, and pressed & dried seaweed by Jennifer Parker. Included in the exhibition are two short films Wild Sun Catchers by emerging artist Simon Johnson and Diatom Worlds by Anya Chytrowski, a UCSC student undergraduate studying art and ecology.
