The Portable Seaweed Library is a mobile bike and bike trailer that folds out to present a camping style library of seaweed texts.
The Library travels to coastal communities, parks and town hall meet ups to share the experience of marine algal research and will consist of printed reference texts and artist books with most being dedicated entirely to marine algae.
This project has been devised by Lichen Kelp for SASi. It was originally conceived as part of Ocean Portal, an exhibition resulting from Kelp’s artist residency; SASi at Siteworks. The Ocean Portal exhibition and the first edition of the Portable Seaweed Library are proudly supported by Arts Moreland and the Community Creator Artist in Residence program.
