A PARALLEL GUIDE TO SEAWEED PROJECT. 2010

A Parallel Guide to Seaweed is a book that serves as a counterpart to a traditional field guide to New England Seaweed, informed by observations, interactions and interventions with nature, and current aquacultural research. Invented, hybrid forms, referencing traditional practices of Victorian pressed flowers, silhouette portraiture, parallel botany, and notions of utopia/dystopia, are created through a combination of drawn, scanned, and altered imagery.   

This project is made possible by the Connecticut Sea Grant and Center for Contemporary Printmaking
