In Ireland along the Atlantic coast, when the seabed temporarily becomes land, bizarre shapes of seaweed appear on the jagged rocks. Fascinating, large and mysterious. With a tough leathery texture, sometimes semi-translucent like the skin of strange sea creatures. What would it be like to walk between those forms?
This fantasy has been further developed with the help of the internet. Using photos for the shapes and videos for the movements of the seaweed in the water.
Kelp forests are a fascinating underwater world. Something to be careful about.
The work is a tribute to these seaweed forests, the suppliers of oxygen and also our future food.
