A speculative algal bloom of ideas
This event has passed
Has the pandemic lockdown got you craving more DYI? Has it got you rethinking how we live our lives more sustainably? Well, seaweed could be the answer!
Join us for Seaweed Salon - a two-part workshop series by the Seaweed Appreciation Society International that invites you on a field trip to another world - an alternate seaweed reality, where edible algae bioplastics are mixed up alongside refreshing seaweed cocktails. Follow Science Gallery Melbourne instagram to take part in these special events.
By speculating on a radically sustainable seaweed future, we will be asking if you can welcome this delicious solution will play a part in our everyday lives. A radical sustainable seaweed intervention has never felt more urgent.
When: Dive into the videos anytime during National Science Week: 15 - 23 August.
Where: Head over to Science Gallery Melbourne's instagram account to access the videos and join the artists Lichen and Jessie for special Q&A sessions.
Lichen Kelp and Jessie French, founding members of Seaweed Appreciation Society International (SASI), a mobile experimental platform dedicated to artistic research into seaweed and marine ecologies, work together artistically as Biomutualism.
Combining their backgrounds in art, public engagement and research, as well as their mutual love of marine science, Biomutualism has grown directly out of SASi as a further means to investigate the materiality of algae and a way of incorporating seaweed into art, design and everyday life.
